Serval (1041048)

Welcome to the Virtual Ecological Research Assistant (VERA)

This is a simplified model of a food web that involves Leptailurus serval (Serval), Redunca arundinum (Southern reedbuck), and Grass generated from the Encyclopedia of Life.

VERA is a tool for modeling and experimenting with ecological systems like the one you see here, and we invite you to try it out!

In the simulation graph, you will see a stable ecosystem where Serval consumes Southern reedbuck, and Southern reedbuck consumes Grass.

In VERA, you can increase the comsumption interaction probability between Serval and Southern reedbuck to see how it affects the ecosystem.

In order to start exploring this ecosystem, you will either need to log in if you already have an account, or sign up for one if you don't have one yet.
