A Primer of Ecology
With the aim of teaching students the essential models in population and community ecology, this book explains in detail the basic concepts of exponential and logistic population growth, age-structured demography, metapopulation dynamics, competition, predation and island biogeography.

(Case 2) 1 K1 Stable coexistence Yes Yes B > K. > 0. (Case 3) 1. K1 Unstable
equilibrium No No B < K2 < 0. (Case 4) Now we have expressions for whether N1
will persist or not, and whether N2 will persist or not. Putting these expressions ...
ity in Table 5.1, coexistence of these species requires that: 1 K1 - 0.5° R. > 0.9
Expression 5.12 Kı - 1.1 > K. - 0.9 Expression 5.13 2 Thus, if the species are very
similar in their use of resources, there is only a narrow range of carrying
How does IGP affect the coexistence of species? The graphical effect ... But if the
inferior competitor is the predator, IGP can change the outcome from competitive
exclusion (case 1) to stable coexistence (case 3: Figure 5.10b). Other outcomes ...
