Logo for Basic Ecological Models
This is a subsite associated with the parent site called IDEA (Internet Differential Equation Activities).  The activity on this page is an introduction to exponential and logistic growth models applied to various ecological systems.  Nine problems explore such concepts as asymptotic behaviour, carrying capacity, harvesting, equilibria, and stability.  Java applet graphing utilities are conveniently placed throughout to provide visualization of solutions.
