Understanding species population dynamics

Wild species populations are known to exhibit a wide range of spatiotemporal dynamics. We are using mathematical modelling to investigate why biological populations show a variety of spatiotemporal dynamics, more commonly associated with chemical and physical systems, such as travelling waves, spirals and chaos. We aim to make our state of the art mathematical techniques understandable and available to biologists generally.

Two tools have been developed to accompany our recent publications, these are:


We have also written an online tutorial for calculating the absolute stability of travelling in the Lambda-Omega equations which can be found by clicking here.
