Modeling population connectivity to predict stability

Natural populations of organisms are always fluctuating, both due to the environment, and interactions with other populations and species, and ecological modeling provides a powerful took to help wildlife and resource managers predict the fluctuations of populations of economically or ecologically valuable species. A new study recently published in the journal Theoretical Ecology, by MSC PhD student […]
