Author Contributions

Sarah Northey conceived and designed the experiments, performed the experiments, analyzed the data, wrote the paper, prepared figures and/or tables, reviewed drafts of the paper.

Courtney Hove conceived and designed the experiments, performed the experiments, analyzed the data, wrote the paper, prepared figures and/or tables, reviewed drafts of the paper.

Justine Kao conceived and designed the experiments, performed the experiments, analyzed the data, important contributions on the nature of algal blooms early in the modeling process and continued discussions that were key to developing this model.

Jon Ide conceived and designed the experiments, performed the experiments, analyzed the data, important contributions on various causes of population density regulation early in the modeling process and continued discussions that were key to developing this model.

Janel McKinney conceived and designed the experiments, performed the experiments, analyzed the data, important contributions on interactions with large predators early in the modeling process and continued discussions that were key to developing this model.

Laurence Loewe conceived and designed the experiments, performed the experiments, analyzed the data, contributed reagents/materials/analysis tools, wrote the paper, prepared figures and/or tables, reviewed drafts of the paper.

Data Deposition

The following information was supplied regarding data availability:

We plan to make the code available in an Evolvix formalism that will last longer than its current transient implementation. Once the transition is done, it will be made available.

Funding

This work was supported by the National Science Foundation through NSF Career Award 1149123 to LL. The funders had no role in study design, data collection and analysis, decision to publish, or preparation of the manuscript.
