H, herbivore population
C, Consumer population
Parameters needed (raw or estimated): biomass, production/biomass ratio (or total mortality), consumption/biomass ratio, and ecotrophic efficiency for each of the functional groups in a model
Trophic energy flows => population and growth rates
Lots of information from ecologists, reef studies, carbon biogeochemists
We can use guilds (as zoologists do) for palaeo-communities
