PCLake is a dynamical food web model for shallow lakes. It has been developed to study the impact of eutrophication. The model shows alternative stable states with hysteresis in the switch from a phytoplankton dominated state to macrophyte dominated state. The aim of the current project is to better link the model with theory on species competition and improve its prediction with phytoplankton species competition.
