Mutualistic communities have an internal structure that makes them resilient to external perturbations. Late research has focused on their stability and the topology of the relations between the different organisms to explain the reasons of the system robustness. Much less attention has been invested in analyzing the systems dynamics. The main population models in use are modifications of the r-K formulation of logistic equation with additional terms to account for the benefits produced by the… Expand
Dragging in mutualistic networks
TLDR
It is shown that population dynamics is as important as network topology when one is interested in the resilience of the community in mutualistic networks. Expand
Study of a factored general logistic model of population dynamics with inter- and intraspecific interactions
Abstract The logistic equation is the simplest way to limit the growth in population dynamics. When ecological interactions come into play different types of models can be found, e.g. forExpand
A general model of population dynamics accounting for multiple kinds of interaction
TLDR
A new model based on a previous logistic-mutualistic model is discussed, which generalised the interspecific terms (for antagonistic and competitive relationships) and has also included new polynomial terms to explain any intraspecific interaction. Expand

The effect of Delayed Dynamics on the Stability of Ecosystems
Differential Equations and random matrix theory have found applications in many fields, ranging from physics, number theory and ecology. Fifty years ago, in a seminal article entitled "Will a LargeExpand
Prevalence of mutualism in a simple model of microbial co-evolution
Evolutionary transitions among ecological interactions are widely known, although their detailed dynamics remain absent for most population models. Adaptive dynamics has been used to illustrate howExpand
Cooperation promotes biodiversity and stability in a model ecosystem
TLDR
A stochastic model is proposed which is appropriate for species communities with mutualistic/commensalistic interactions and finds that, in the large system size limit, any number of species can coexist for a very general class of interaction networks and that the stationary state is globally stable.

Robustness of Plant-Pollinator Mutualistic Networks to Phenological Mismatches
TLDR
This Master Thesis attempts to measure the robustness of a plant-pollinator community to shifts in their life cycles (phenologies) by characterising a phase transition triggered by phenological noise in a non-spatially extended model and suggests the existence of a second order non-equilibrium phase transition.

Reconciling cooperation, biodiversity and stability in complex ecological communities
TLDR
The theoretical approach shows that appropriate models of mediated cooperation naturally lead to a solution of the long-standing question about complexity-stability paradox and on how highly biodiverse communities can coexist. Expand
Multiple interactions networks: towards more realistic descriptions of the web of life
TLDR
It is suggested that three main frameworks are in use to investigate the properties of multiple interactions networks: ‘expanded food-webs’, ‘multilayer networks’ and ‘equal footing networks�’. Expand

Emergence of structural and dynamical properties of ecological mutualistic networks
TLDR
This work shows analytically that the abundance of the rarest species is linked directly to the resilience of the community, and provides a unifying framework for studying the emergent structural and dynamical properties of ecological mutualistic networks. Expand
Phenology drives mutualistic network structure and diversity.
TLDR
A negative complexity-stability relationship is found, where phenologies maximising mutualistic interactions and minimising intraguild competitive interactions generate speciose, nested and poorly connected networks with moderate asymmetry and low resilience. Expand
A simple model of bipartite cooperation for ecological and organizational networks
TLDR
This work proposes a highly parsimonious model that can reproduce the overall bipartite structure of cooperative partner–partner interactions, as exemplified by plant–animal mutualistic networks, and tests it on ten large pollination data sets. Expand
Biodiversity in model ecosystems, II: species assembly and food web structure.
TLDR
The ecological overlap between species and shared preys provides a quantitative measure of the effective interspecies competition and of the trophic network topology in species assembly models where the population dynamics is kept far from fixed points through the continuous introduction of new species. Expand
The ghost of nestedness in ecological networks.
TLDR
It is shown that complex ecological networks are binary nested, but quantitative preferences are non-nested, indicating limited consumer overlap of favoured resources, and it is concluded that species preferences are partitioned to avoid competition, thereby benefiting system-wide resource allocation.

TLDR
If multiple factors determine changes in population density, there can be no predictability in either of these paradigms and scientists will become environmental historians rather than scientists with useful generalizations for the population problems of this century. Expand
Stability of Ecological Communities and the Architecture of Mutualistic and Trophic Networks
TLDR
It is concluded that strong variations in the stability of architectural patterns constrain ecological networks toward different architectures, depending on the type of interaction. Expand
The architecture of mutualistic networks minimizes competition and increases biodiversity
TLDR
It is shown that nestedness reduces effective interspecific competition and enhances the number of coexisting species, and that a nested network will naturally emerge if new species are more likely to enter the community where they have minimal competitive load. Expand
Multiscale mobility networks and the spatial spreading of infectious diseases
TLDR
The present approach outlines the possibility for the definition of layered computational approaches where different modeling assumptions and granularities can be used consistently in a unifying multiscale framework. Expand
Nestedness versus modularity in ecological networks: two sides of the same coin?
TLDR
It is found that the correlation between nestedness and modularity for a population of random matrices generated from the real communities decreases significantly in magnitude and sign with increasing connectance independent of the network type. Expand
