      Abstract: In many respects, amphibian spatial dynamics resemble classical metapopulation models, in which subpopulations in breeding ponds blink in and out of existence and extinction and colonization rates are functions of pond spatial arrangement. This “ponds‐as‐patches” view of amphibian spatial dynamics is useful in several respects. First, it Cited by: This book met this criterion. Metacommunities. makes an excellent case that metacommunity theory is not just metapopulation theory for the 00s. Substantially different dynamics from those predicted in metapopulation models result when dispersal enmeshes the local dynamics of multiple interacting species.

    The role of metapopulations in conservation _____ H. Resit Akc¸akaya, Gus Mills and C. Patrick Doncaster Nothing in the world is single; metapopulation dynamics. The goal of this essay is to review the potential applications of metapopulation concepts and models in reserve.   This book will provide fundamental reading for anyone studying the spatial dynamics of populations. This book is an essential reference for anyone who is interested in Book Edition: 1.

    A metapopulation consists of a group of spatially separated populations of the same species which interact at some level. The term metapopulation was coined by Richard Levins in to describe a model of population dynamics of insect pests in agricultural fields, but the idea has been most broadly applied to species in naturally or artificially fragmented habitats. "This book provides a feast for those fascinated by spatial patterns and dynamics of populations, be they ecologists or geneticists. No fact of metpopulation or source-sink dynamics has escaped attention. The result is the most comprehensive treatment of metapopulations yet undertaken, and it will remain so for quite some time."3/5(1).

Metapopulation Dynamics: Empirical and Theoretical Investigations covers the proceedings of a metapopulation dynamics workshop held at Lammi Biological Station, Helsinki, Finland. It is divided into 18 chapters that cover various approaches to spatially structured population and community dynamics.

Metapopulation dynamics The theory is very simple. The world is divided up into many patches, all of which are potentially habitable. Populations on inhabited patches go extinct with a density-independent - Selection from The R Book [Book].

Metacommunities takes the hallmarks of metapopulation theory to the next level by considering a group of communities, each of which may contain numerous populations, connected by Metapopulation Dynamics book interactions within communities and the movement of individuals between communities.

In examining communities open to dispersal, the book unites a broad range of Metapopulation Dynamics book theories, presenting some of the first empirical investigations and revealing the value of the metacommunity /5(3). The thirteen chapters of the book cover a history of metapopulation ecology, introductory and more recent theory, empirical examples, and case studies.

A highlight is Hanski's ability to relate metapopulation ecology to other parts of ecology (applied and pure)/5(4). This book is an essential reference for anyone who is interested in conservation and population dynamics. About the Author Hanski obtained his first degree in zoology and botany in from the University of Helsinki, Finland, and his in zoology in from the University of : Academic Press.

Also the metapopulation concept problem of the inert habitat heterogenity is considered quite seldom. These approaches have some weak points resulting from the assumption that the border between habitat patches and the metapopulation matrix is fairly sharp.

Metapopulation dynamics in a broad sense are not restricted to systems with population turnover, extinctions and colonizations, but the concept developed here Author: Ilkka Hanski. This paper presents individual-based models describing metapopulation dynamics.

The local-population model describes the dynamics of a population without overlapping : Saskya Van Nouhuys. Metapopulation dynamics are inherently stochastic, because population extinction and colonization are stochastic events, and real metapopulations are additionally affected by regional stochasticity.

Nonetheless, stochasticity is often ignored and instead a deterministic model is constructed and analyzed. By forcing metapopulation dynamics on a formerly heterogeneous (but stable within subpopulations) population, the probability of simultaneous extinction of all subpopulations actually increases.

Thus, it cannot be automatically assumed that increasing matrix quality will lower the probability of global extinction of a by: In order to model local patch dynamics, Lande et al. [13] introduced a diffusion approximation as a way to analytically analyze metapopulations.

They described metapopulation dynamics as consecutive, isolated, extinction and recolonization events. This method had the limitation of relying on low immigration rates, but.

These results demonstrate the importance of metapopulation dynamics and landscape connectivity for the persistence of populations in fragmented landscapes. The observation that locally abundant species tend to be widespread, whereas locally rare species tend to be narrowly distributed, is one of the most pervasive patterns in ecology (1–3).Cited by: The current most popular approach is based on the metapopulation concept (Levins ) and on the study of metapopulation dynamics (for reviews, see HanskiHastings and HarrisonHanski and Gilpin ).

An important assumption is that all local populations have a significant risk of extinction. metapopulation dynamics: brief history and conceptual domain; introduction; the metapopulation idea quantified; the roots of the levins model; metapopulation terminology; single-species metapopulations: beyond the levins model; metacommunities; metapopulations and island biogeography; metapopulations and patchy environments; metapopulations and.

This paper describes a novel approach to modelling of metapopulation dynamics. The model is constructed as a generalized incidence function, which describes how.

The book describes theoretical models for metapopulation dynamics in highly fragmented landscapes and emphasizes spatially realistic models. It presents the incidence function model and includes several detailed examples of its application.4/5(2).
