## Species Migration Model

Attack of the Invisible Retreating Cows

Mark Jenne, Chandler Kent and Derek Hammer

### The Problem

• We aimed to create a functional, relational and mathematical model of species interaction

• The model was intended to have user defined environmental and species population disruptions that could easily be applied

• The model was intended to be accessed through an intuitive interface using HTML, PHP, Javascript and MySQL

### Algorithm

• For each region

• For each species in that region

• For each prey of the species

• For each predator of the prey

• calculateSurvivability

• survivabilityIndex = ( foodAvailability + heatIndex ) / 2

• foodAvailability= prey – predator / species

### Constraints

• Entity Integrity Constraints

• All _ID Fields are auto incremented, unique and not null

• Certain fields have a floor (e.g. Population, Sunlight, …)

• Referential Constraints

### Challenges

• Database Problems

• MySQL

• Data Problems

• No data available

• GUI Problems

• PHP / MySQL Interaction

• Team Problems (Sriram)

• Time

• SVN

• Experience

### Future Development

• ASEE Conference

• Optimize NextYear procedure

• Beyond that

• Develop better methods for determining a species probable migration pattern.

• Accurately control range of migration for each species.

• Include instinctual patterns of movement where necessary.

• Define species to have more characteristics.

### Questions

• Well, are there any?
