Modelling the plankton - Research Topic in Frontiers in Marine Science

In collaboration with Frontiers in Marine Science, section Marine Ecosystem Ecology, the Topic Editors are organizing a Research Topic titled "Modelling the plankton – enhancing the integration of biological knowledge and mechanistic understanding”.


Mathematical models have become an important tool with a wide range of application in marine science. However more recent biological knowledge and mechanistic understanding is often not reflected in those models.

Examples include, but are certainly not limited to, the role of viruses, mis- or underrepresented functional groups such as gelatinous plankton, or mixotrophy.


To improve the representation of these fundamental building blocks in marine numerical models we invite you to contribute to this Research Topic.


These challenges can be addressed by different approaches, each with their own merits. Therefore we invite contributions from diverse schools of modelling, theoretical and experimental approaches.


Please find more information regarding this Research Topic below.


Note the submission deadline for this Research Topic: Jun 01, 2016.


Please circulate this information to any colleagues who you think would be interested in contributing.


With best regards,
