MODELING OF PLANKTON VERTICAL PROFILES WITH DIEL VERTICAL MIGRATIONS OF MESOZOOPLANKTON

The paper presents a model of the spatiotemporal dynamics of plankton community. The vertical structure of the populations of phytoplankton, microzooplankton and mesozooplankton is analyzed with due account for the daily vertical migrations of zooplankton and the presence of plant and animal food in its diet.

Keywords: mathematical modeling, plankton community, diel vertical migrations, spatial structures
