We develop a spatially explicit, two-sex, individual-based model (IBM) and a derived spatially homogeneous model (SHM) to describe the Allee effect due to scarcity of mating possibilities at low population sizes or densities. The SHM, based on coupled difference equations, represents the first spatially homogeneous approach to this phenomenon, which differentiates between sexes and relies only on measurable population parameters. The IBM reinforces the findings of the SHM by adopting more… CONTINUE READING
