A Metapopulation Model with Discrete Size Structure

  title={A Metapopulation Model with Discrete Size Structure},
  author={Maia Martcheva and Horst R. Thieme},
We consider a discrete size-structured metapopulation model with the proportions of patches occupied by n individuals as dependent variables. Adults are territorial and stay on a certain patch. The juveniles may emigrate to enter a dispersers’ pool from which they can settle on another patch and become adults. Absence of colonization and absence of emigration lead to extinction of the metapopulation. We define the basic reproduction number R0 of the metapopulation as a measure for its strength… CONTINUE READING
