Dynamics of Different Topological Configurations in a Three-Patch Metapopulation Model

Full Text PDF


The possible dynamics of an ecosystem with three interconnected patches among which one population can migrate are investigated, paying attention to the consequences that possible disruption in the communicating paths can cause.
