Population dynamics

- Predator-prey dynamics

The first paper discusses the use of experimental measurements to create an age-structured model for ginseng plant populations, and to analyze the effect of deer browsing. The second article models predator-prey dynamics in a chemostat, in terms of ordinary differential equations. The third paper discusses foodwebs. The fourth article discusses tri-trophic food chains, and the fifth considers possible consequences of the eradication of a predator.

- Parasitism and predation

The first paper considers a model of coupled ordinary differential equations describing the effect of water mites on mosquito populations. The second article investigates a discrete model (coupled maps) describing parasitoid-host interactions.

- Competing species
