POPULUS Lotka - Volterra, the logistic equation & Isle Royale
out of 5 stars
13 Feb 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Stephen Malcolm
Laboratory exercise explores predator-prey dynamics using Populus.
POPULUS Simulations of interspecific competition using the Lotka-Volterra model
13 Feb 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Scott Creel
Explores the Lotka-Volterra model of interspecific competition using Populus.
POPULUS Evolutionary forces
03 Feb 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Jonathan M. Brown
This lab is focused on understanding how evolutionary forces - including mutation, genetic drift, migration, and selection - result in changes in population allele frequencies.
30 Jan 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Miles Silman
Lab exercise in which students model both discrete and continuous density-independent growth. Students also model discrete and time-lagged density-dependent growth. General questions are provided at the end.
Lotka-Volterra, the logistic equation, and Isle Royale
30 Jan 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Stephen Malcolm
Students work through the basic Lotka-Volterra predator prey model using an example in which the prey exhibit density independence. Students then incorporate density dependence of prey items using several different features of Populus.
POPULUS Genetic Drift Computer Simulation
30 Jan 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Joanna Vondrasek, Janis Antonovics, Doug Taylor
A stand-alone lab exercise developed for the Evolution course at the University of Virginia. Explores the effects of population size and initial allele frequency on the loss/fixation of alleles.
