Defense mechanisms are very common in unicellular plankton. A wide variety of these mechanisms (toxins, shell etc.) is observed and it is rather difficult to quantify the cost of being defended against predators using laboratory experiments. We show that the implementation of the competition-defense tradeoff in a size based model of unicellular...
