Sustainability in single species population models Bekanntschaften coesfeld

The most basic model of density dependence in single-species population is the continuous logistic-growth equation.

One version of the model is first introduced in Verhulst 1838, although the model is often referred to as the Verhulst-Pearl model: Pearl and Reed 1920 is the first to make the model available to the broad scientific community.

This article focuses on single-species population dynamics, with a particular emphasis on models that do not explicitly consider interactions between different species.

There are a phenomenal number of observational and experimental studies of single-species population dynamics with density dependence.

In these studies, empirical and theoretical ecologists have tried for several decades to unravel the main mechanisms that underpin the demography of natural populations.
