https://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=3626&ref=Feed
This paper is an analysis of a stage-based model of the dynamics of a palm tree species, using, a modification of the Leslie model. In this case, the assumption is that the stage of an organism (size class) is a better indicator of reproductive performance and survival than age is. This assumption works well for many plants, and any organism in which size is correlated with survival and fecundity. <img src="https://www.maplesoft.com/view.aspx?si=3626//applications/images/app_image_blank_lg.jpg" alt="Demography of the vegetable ivory palm Pytelephas seemanii in Colombia, and the impact of seed harvesting " style="max-width: 25%;" align="left"/>This paper is an analysis of a stage-based model of the dynamics of a palm tree species, using, a modification of the Leslie model.

https://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=3610&ref=Feed
Consider a population in which there are conflicts. Each individual has fitness w prior to the conflict, and its fitness changes after the conflict. The average fitness of an individual is its baseline fitness plus the fitness change resulting from an encounter with another individual, weighted by the probability of such an encounter. For a population with 2 types of individuals, H and D, in proportion p and (1-p) in the population, the fitness wh of type H individuals is dependent upon the fitness change ehh associated with encountering another H individual ( the probability of such an encounter is p), and the fitness change ehd associated with encountering a D individual (the probability of such an encounter is 1-p):

Population growth and the earth's human carrying capacity is the focus of this application. The annual rate of increase of the earth's population was 0.04% per year from AD 1 to 1650, rose to a peak of 2.1% per year around 1965-1970, and is now 1.6%. What are the consequences of these differences in rates? <img src="https://www.maplesoft.com/view.aspx?si=3550//applications/images/app_image_blank_lg.jpg" alt="Population growth and the earth's human carrying capacity " style="max-width: 25%;" align="left"/>Population growth and the earth's human carrying capacity is the focus of this application.

The basic theory of competition is discussed in this application where the 'effective carrying capacity' of the environment in this case is reduced by the presence of competitors for resources.

https://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=3548&ref=Feed
Manually implements Euler's method for solving differential equations numerically, using population growth as a working example. We look at two simple models of population growth for a bunch of (pseudo-)rabbits. To distinguish them, we use R and S to denote the respective rabbit populations. Both begin with size 10, and both have intrinsic (per capita) rate of increase r = 0.1.

https://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=3502&ref=Feed
The behavior of the solutions of a Dynamic System is often strongly dependent upon its parameters. As one varies a parameter continuously, equilibrium points can come and go, spawning limit cycles which then may survive or fade away. An example is Hopf Bifurcation in a predator-prey model. Using animation, we examine the bifurcation as a parameter changes, first with a single trajectory and then with multiple trajectories. Finally, a two-variable animation is created which shows how another parameter in the system affects the bifurcation.<img src="https://www.maplesoft.com/view.aspx?si=3502//applications/images/app_image_blank_lg.jpg" alt="Hopf bifurcation in a predator-prey model" style="max-width: 25%;" align="left"/>The behavior of the solutions of a Dynamic System is often strongly dependent upon its parameters.

https://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=3501&ref=Feed
This application describes the dynamics of arthropod predator-prey systems where the first part explores the standard density independent and dependent models. The second part is concerned with a more general (algebraic) eigenvalue analysis of both the original and the density dependent models. The last part investigates the stability analysis from a graphical point of view, giving an idication why the jacobian matrix is used. <img src="https://www.maplesoft.com/view.aspx?si=3501//applications/images/app_image_blank_lg.jpg" alt="Dynamics of arthropod predator-prey systems" style="max-width: 25%;" align="left"/>This application describes the dynamics of arthropod predator-prey systems where the first part explores the standard density independent and dependent models.

https://www.maplesoft.com/applications/view.aspx?SID=3499&ref=Feed
This worksheet on Biological populations with non-overlapping generations has three parts. In the first two parts we look at the model itself, and especially at the long term behaviour of the trajectories and how this may depend on initial conditions, growth parameters, etc. In section 1 we consider the dynamics of a single species; in section 2 we consider two competing species. The third part (originally bifurc.ms) introduces the idea of a bifurcation diagram, which is a record of the repeated "stable points" that occur for different growth parameter values.<img src="https://www.maplesoft.com/view.aspx?si=3499//applications/images/app_image_blank_lg.jpg" alt="Biological populations with non-overlapping generations: stable points, stable cycles and chaos" style="max-width: 25%;" align="left"/>This worksheet on Biological populations with non-overlapping generations has three parts.
