Applied Math Seminar: Modeling Extinction Debt

2010-03-31

3:15 PM; Neill Hall 3W

Matt Labrum

Abstract: In a 1994 paper, Tilman et al. discussed a model for extinction debt after habitat destruction. I will talk about the variations on this basic model I have been developing to further explore extinction debt. These modifications, incorporated separately, include randomizing initial proportions as well as adding in each of habitat restoration, stochasticity, and a payoff matrix.
