This electronic laboratory for work on the Dynamic Energy Budget theory is a site where you can download software that may be useful for research and education purposes. It aims to facilitate the application of the theory, and to stimulate collaboration.
Like a real laboratory, we have some artwork on the wall. Here, we can let it move ..
|artwork||The three-dimensional state space plot, presented in the artwork, illustrates the asymptotic behaviour of a tri-trophic chain in a chemostat. You want to see a close up?|
|We also have a poem|
|DEBtool||is a package, written in Matlab and
that can be used to study the ecophysiological behaviour of animals,
plants, algae, microorganisms and symbioses in a graphical way.
Effects of chemicals can be studied.
It deals with metabolism and interactions between individuals and species;
it also allows to fit DEB models to your data.
Script-files are included that produce the figures of the
|DEBtox||Matlab scripts for the simultaneous analysis of multiple endpoints in ecotoxicity tests|
|DEBibm||Implementation of the standard DEB model in DEBibm in NetLogo to simulate population dynamics. Download Background information.|
|DEBlib||library and computational framework for the solution of problems in Dynamic Energy Budget (DEB) theory, dealing with biological systems from the organism to the ecosystem level.|
|PlotReader||extracts coordinates from plots of data, written by Jorn Bruggeman.|
|Add_my_pet||Collection of data and parameters values of the standard DEB model for a wide variety of species (including representatives of most large phyla and of all 13 chordate classes) and the Matlab-files that obtain the parameters from data using debtool.
|Phyto_pars||Collection of values for the parameters of the Monod parameters for freshwater phytoplankton species. Method .|
|Errata||Errata for the DEB-book. Those for the 2nd edition are no longer maintained. Go to the champion list for error-spotting.|
|Summary of concepts||Presentation and discussion of DEB concepts, which follows the chapters and sections of the DEB-book. It avoids the use of mathematics and also tests against experimental data.|
|Comments||Explanations and extensions of the DEB-book; they follow the chapters and sections of this book. The comments on 2nd edition are no longer maintained.|
|DEB notation||This document explains the notation that is used in DEB theory, in the hope that it helps to standardise it for further development of de theory.|
|Micro-lectures||Collection of some 500 PowerPoint slides with short comments by sound,
which follows the chapters and sections of the
DEB-book (0.5 Gb).
You can also download the ppt-files separately, without sound tracks

|Lifecycles||These sites give a mondern overview of the classification of organisms as background for the many species mentioned in the DEB-book.|
|Exercises & answers||Collection of exercises, which follows the chapters of the DEB-book.|
|Quizzes & checks||These quizzes might help you to check your progress in the understanding of DEB theory. They can be used as part of the DEB tele-course.|
|Essays & theses||The essays were written as part of a DEB tele-course. Theses on DEB theory and its applications.|
|Questions & answers||These sites give collections of questions and answers that arose during the DEB tele-courses. The numbering follow the chapters and sections of the DEB-books, editions 2 and 3.|
|Basic methods in Theoretical biology||This document summarises basic methods that is required for work in quantitative biology. Examples illustrate the application of these methods.|
