Subject Typos in help file? Date/Time? 2008-03-28 08:32:41 Posted By Yu-Chun Kao I'm a beginner of EwE and learning EwE via the help files. I think there might be typos in EwE 6.0 help file. First, in section 3.2 Ecosim basic equation 50, should the other mortality term be M0i instead of Mi? Then the notation will be more consistent.

Second, in Ecopath document, 2.1 equation 11, gi is defined as gross food conversion efficiency, while in Ecosim, 3.2 equation 50, gi is the net growth efficiency. I'm wondering why they are different?

Third, in Ecopath the suffix ji means group j prey on group i (i.e. DCji in equation 4) while in Ecosim, suffix ji means group i prey on group j (i.e. Qji in equation 50). It is very confusing to me but may not be a big problem as there always is explanation following those equations.

From issue #577: manual proclaims Ecospace can be paused, but this feature does not yet exist in the code. The manual should be updated here.

Posted by user on EwE support page....just a few typos for whomever is going to be working on the help files

Modified the first two, the last one is a task that doesn't need to be acknowledged as it could potentially cause too many errors with very little benefits as they are all documented.
