Now that I have got my linear model down, I have coupled my two populations (photo and non-photosensitive) together and created a basic nonlinear model. In this model all age classes are split into NP and P, and the Adult class is also split into male and female. A lot of new parameters arise from this, however some of these may collapse after I talk to Prof Heideman. Right now I am working on creating all my equations and making a parameter/variable table in Tech. Once I have this done (it may take awhile), I will start putting this model into matlab to analyze it. Later on I will add nonlinear functions to make additional models, for example my birth rate may become a function of both the number of NP and P and nutrients.
