- Lecture, February 23:
- Consider the logistic growth model, modified for a constant rate of hunting:
dP/dt = .1 P ( 1 - P/1000 ) - h. If h=10, what long term predictions
does the model make? What is the minimum population that can sustain
this ammoint of hunting?
- Using the same model with h=30, what predictions can you make?
- The logistic model dP/dt = .1 P ( 1 - P/1000 ) can be modified to
include the effect of disease on the population. The rate of sspread of
disease is proportional to the square of the population size. So we should
consider the model dP/dt = .1 P ( 1 - P/1000 ) - dP^2. How does the
carrying capacity depend on the constant d? What is the carrying capacity
