EEMB 5130: Population Dynamics
Lecture - 4 credits
- Presents a comprehensive overview of the mathematical and computational concepts needed to construct population models.
- Describes how to mathematically derive and model processes such as growth, competition, predation, dispersal, and environmental variability to understand the dynamics of populations in a changing world.
- Emphasizes the mathematical tools required to analyze the dynamical behavior of models (e.g., stability, invasion, graphical, and numerical analyses) and validate predictions using empirical data (e.g., via maximum likelihood and optimization methods).
- Offers students an opportunity to learn how to derive, analyze, and test models using free R programming in a supervised lab environment.
