Strong effect of dispersal network structure on ecological dynamics

  title={Strong effect of dispersal network structure on ecological dynamics},
  author={Matthew D. Holland and Alan Hastings},
A central question in ecology with great importance for management, conservation and biological control is how changing connectivity affects the persistence and dynamics of interacting species. Researchers in many disciplines have used large systems of coupled oscillators to model the behaviour of a diverse array of fluctuating systems in nature. In the well-studied regime of weak coupling, synchronization is favoured by increases in coupling strength and large-scale network structures (for… CONTINUE READING
