    A simple model consisting of two diffusively coupled logistic maps is used to examine the effects of spatial heterogeneity on population dynamics. Examining the dynamic behaviour of the model using numerical methods, a wide range of behaviours are observed. It is shown that the coupling can stabilize individually chaotic populations, and that under different circumstances the coupling can cause individually stable periodic populations to undergo more complex behaviour. The system exhibits… CONTINUE READING
