The Importance of Transients' Dynamics in Spatially Extended Populations.

Recent theoretical works on the dynamics of metapopulations have highlighted the existence of very long transients (supertransients) with abrupt changes in behaviour which occur following perturbation of the system away from its attractor. If this …

The Need for Biological Realism in the Updating of Cellular Automata Models

Spatially explicit models like cellular automata are widely used in ecology. The spatio-temporal order of events is a new feature of these models that does not have to be considered in equivalent non-spatial models. We considered simple stochastic …
