1.91 Modeling Community Dynamics (New)
Fundamentals of quantitative ecology and their application towards understanding the dynamics and persistence of ecological communities-ensemble of multiple species populations. Focuses on modeling principles from single, pairs, to multiple species. Modeling covers phenomenological and mechanistic understanding through graphical, analytical, and numerical analysis. Topics include growth, different notions of stability, feasibility, exploitation and maximization of resources, pest outbreaks, perturbations, species coexistence, and experiment-to-modeling approaches among others. Concepts applicable to micro- and macro-communities.
