(p.209) Chapter Thirteen Models for Fluctuating Rodent Populations
Population Fluctuations in Rodents

Charles J. Krebs

University of Chicago Press

This chapter describes the mathematical models of rodent population cycles or fluctuations. It first provides a brief historical background of mathematical models that have been put forward to explain rodent population dynamics, and then discusses six models for vegetation–herbivore population interactions and the parameters contained in these models. The chapter also discusses models of predator–prey dynamics, reproductive timing, and maternal effects.

Keywords:   mathematical models, population cycles, population dynamics, vegetation–herbivore population, predator–prey dynamics, reproductive timing, maternal effects
