The related DEB models share a number of parameters, from which implied properties can be computed.

This page gives

survivor functions of the values in the collection with their medians.

κ

_{X} is the

digestion efficiency, i.e. the fraction of food energy that converts to

reserve energy.

v is the

energy conductance. It controls the reserve mobilisation rate.
The larger the

value, the lower the reserve capacity.

κ is the

allocation fraction to soma,
i.e. the fraction of mobilised reserve energy that is allocated to somatic maintenance plus growth.

κ

_{R} is the

reproduction efficiency,
i.e. the conversion efficiency from reverve in the reproduction buffer (of adults) to energy

fixed in offspring (mostly eggs).

E

_{Hb} is the

maturity level at birth,

i.e. the initiation of feeding.
It is

proportional to the cubed zoom factor z.

E

_{Hp} is the

maturity level at puberty,

i.e. the ceasing of further maturation and the initiation of allocation to reproduction.
It is proportional to the cubed zoom factor z.

Zoom factor z is the (dimensionless) value with which 1 cm must be multiplied to arrive at maximum structural length, i.e. the cubic root of maximum structural volume.
It is a function of the parameters κ, {p

_{Am}} and [p

_{M}].
