Theoretical ecology and models

Theoretical ecology and models

Section edited by Sandrine Pavoine

 This section considers studies in the mathematical modeling of ecological processes and theories.

  1. In fragmented landscapes, natural and anthropogenic disturbances coupled with successional processes result in the destruction and creation of habitat patches. Disturbances are expected to reduce metapopulatio...
