Individual-based model to "Intraspecific trait variation in personality‐related movement behavior promotes coexistence" (Milles et al., 2020)

Individual-based model to "Intraspecific trait variation in personality‐related movement behavior promotes coexistence" (Milles et al., 2020) (version 1.0.0)

The community consequences of intra-specific trait variation (ITV) are a current topic in ecological research. The effects of ITV on species coexistence have, yet, not sufficiently been understood. With this individual-based model we analyzed the effect of intra-specific variation in movement by mimicking variation found in ground-dwelling rodents and analyzing how such variation affects inter-specific differences in competitive ability (i.e. foraging efficiency) and temporary coexistence. The movement algorithm and behavioral plasticity was adapted from existing algorithms and current ecological literature. As a measure for temporary coexistence, we analyzed the time until one of the species went extinct.
