BIOL 223: Ecology

BIOL 223: Ecology

Fall 2013
Offered at Mount Holyoke College.
Professor Martha Hoopes

Description

Students use mathematical models to understand biology (single species population growth, Lotka-Volterra predator-prey and competition models). The class uses calculus-based models and phase plane analysis to look at ecological processes as well as ilfe tables and potentially matrix models to examine stage-based population growth.
