Abstract

We study the dynamics of age structure of the populations of copepods with the help of a chemicobiological model of shallow-water ecosystems developed on the basis of the technology of object-based modeling of marine ecological systems. The role of a prototype of the model species of copepods is played by Euterpina acutifrons (order Harpacticoida). The detailed analysis of parametrizations used for the description of the life cycle of this species is presented. We analyze the results of numerical experiments devoted to the investigation of a generation of copepods starting from the first stage of development, formation of a stationary age structure under various temperature and trophic conditions, and the appearance of population waves caused by the action of destabilizing factors on the population.
