The mizer package implements multi-species dynamic Size-spectrum models in R. It has been designed for modelling aquatic ecosystems.

Using mizer is relatively simple. There are four main stages, each described in more detail in sections below.

  1. Installing mizer.

  2. Setting the model parameters.

  3. Running a simulation.

  4. Exploring the results.
