Habitat fragmentation is known to be a key factor affecting population dynamics. In a previous study by Strohm and Tyson (Bull Math Biol 71:1323–1348, 2009), the effect of habitat fragmentation on cyclic population dynamics was studied using spatially explicit predator–prey models with four different sets of reaction terms. The difficulty with spatially explicit models is that often analytical tractability is lost and the mechanisms behind the behaviour of the models are difficult to analyse… CONTINUE READING
