Homework 2. Due Tuesday Jan 29.
1) There are several ways to describe the dynamics of a population with
age and or stage structure. In class we covered discrete time, discrete
age and continuous time, continuous age. Discuss the relative merits
of these two approaches, and the implicit biological assumptions we have
made in each one.
2) These two models ignore density dependence. Discuss what
the value (or lack thereof) is of an approach which ignores density dependence.
