An ecosystem model applied to Miramare Natural Marine Reserve limits, advantages and perspectives Un modello di ecosistema applicato alla Riserva Naturale Marina di Miramare limiti, vantaggi e prospettive



Biologia Marina Mediterranea 131: 386-395 (Parte Prima)



A mass-balance model is applied to the Miramare Natural Marine Reserve (Trieste, Italy) for describing the web of trophic interactions. This ecosystem model is built using Ecopath with Ecosim software and it allows to link in a coherent frame information obtained from field measurements. Analysis applied to the trophic web allowed to evidence properties of the protected ecosystem along with characteristics of functional groups used to describe the ecosystem. This preliminary application evidenced: a) the potential of the tool; b) data and parameters important for an accurate modelling description; c) the biological compartments on which the efforts of new monitoring should be directed for a more accurate and coherent description of the ecosystem; d) theoretical limits and practical difficulties in implementing this kind of models.
