Theoretical ecology and models

Section edited by Sandrine Pavoine

 This section considers studies in the mathematical modeling of ecological processes and theories.

  1. Research article

    Application of fundamental equations to species−area theory

    Species−area relationship (SAR), endemics-area relationship (EAR) and overlap-area relationship (OAR) are three important concepts in biodiversity study. The application of fundamental equations linking the SA...
