American black bears (Ursus americanus) and grizzly bears (U. arctos) have similar habitat requirements, relying on seasonally available grasses, forbs, fruiting shrubs and trees, and neonate ungulates. To avoid aggressive encounters with grizzly bears, black bears partition habitats spatially...
Irregularities in observed population densities have traditionally been attributed to discretization of the underlying dynamics. We propose an alternative explanation by demonstrating the evolution of spatiotemporal chaos in reaction-diffusion models for predator-prey interactions. The chaos is...
Allee effects are an important component in the population dynamics of numerous species. Accounting for these Allee effects in population viability analyses generally requires estimates of low-density population growth rates, but such data are unavailable for most species and particularly...
Population-level Responses to Nutrient Heterogeneity and Density by Abutilon Theophrasti (Malvaceae): An Experimental Neigborhood ApproachDownload
An experimental approach was used to examine the effects of spatial nutrient heterogeneity and planting density on the sizes of plants within populations of Abutilon theophrasti. Planting locations were generated using random numbers and replicated among populations growing on two different...
