Figure 7.

Sensitivity of system state to model parameters. Plots show sensitivity of system state variables to model parameters. Sensitivity shown as alteration of final state value normalised relative to benchmark parameters given in Table 1. Data shown are mean values (±1 std.dev.) from 10-run ensembles for each parameter set. State variables (left-to-right): resource concentration R, total bacterial density N, total phage density V, bacterial strain richness #b, phage strain richness #p. Model parameters (top-to-bottom): resource supply concentration R0, maximum resource uptake rate γ, half-saturation constant K, dilution rate ω, resource conversion rate ε, burst size β, maximum adsorption rate ϕ.
