Caswell, Hal Emeritus, Biology


I study the mathematical ecology of populations and communities. I use models that include the life cycle, the vital rates, dispersal patterns, and temporal and spatial variation in the environment. I use these models to explore population growth, extinction, invasion, and spatial pattern, and apply the results to conservation biology. My research is defined by processes, not taxa; at the moment it considers marine mammals, seabirds, terrestrial plants, and benthic invertebrates.
