System level effects exhibited by a population subjected to a chronic or an acute dose of toxicant are the emphasis of this study. A three dimensional model of a toxicant and a population, with state variables (the population biomass, the concentration of toxicant in an organism, and the concentration of toxicant in the environment) coupled by a linear dose-response function, is analyzed analytically. One of the main results presents sufficient conditions, in terms of a system level parameter… CONTINUE READING
