When estimating parameters, or studying implied properties and/or model predictions for the species of interest, it is possible to customize the way in which your uni-variate data are presented (plotted) in Matlab.

This is done by creating a custom_results file. If such a file exists in the same folder as the other four user defined files ( mydata, predict, pars_init, and run files), it will be called automatically by the DEBtool_M routines.

Creating a custom_results file

A template for a custom_results file is provided in DEBtool_M\lib\pet. The custom_result_template will plot uni-variate data of the generic example (my_pet) in subplots, when _template is replaced by _my_pet.

You can copy the provided template to your local (working) folder, replace _template with the latin name of your species, and then code in the uni-variate data you wish you plot. Plots can be customized in any desired way, depending on your needs and coding skills.

It is important to note that only those uni-variate data which are specified in the custom_results_my_pet file will be plotted, even though all uni-variate data will be used for parameter estimation.

For multi-species estimation, an example of a customized plotting-file is also given in DEBtool_M\lib\pet and is (always) called custom_results_group. The presence of a file with this name in the local directory suppresses other plotting of the estimation results, as specified in results_pets.
