Extinction in a self-regulating population with demographic and environmental noise

Abstract

Models of population dynamics have been the subject of much study in biology. The essay of Malthus (1798) rst suggested exponential growth. The idea of quantitative limits on growth is usually attributed to Verhulst (1838), who pioneered the use of the logistic equation (LE), and to Lotka (1920) and Volterra (1926), who considered models of predators and prey. Typically these early studies of population dynamics regards the units of interest as the number of individuals in populations of one or more species, without regard to genetic diversity within a population.
