v 0.02 0.1194cm/denergy conductance
kap 0.8 0.7931-allocation fraction to soma
kap_R 0.95 0.95-reproduction efficiency

k 0.3 0.2203-maintenance ratio


  • Mod_1: In view of low somatic maintenance, pseudodata k_J = 0.002 1/d is replaced by pseudodata k = 0.3
  • Mod_2: data from the Ningaloo population are calculated for f=0.8 based on the ratio of the size attained by the Ningaloo population and the size of the largest published green turtle record
  • Mod_2: we assume that the density of yolk is different than that of the density of reserve and structure. So the yolk density d_Y is introduced as an extra parameter.
