Dynamics of Populations of Consumers

  • Ivan Valiela


The growth or decline of a population over a period of time can be expressed in terms of the changes in biomass (ΔB) or of numbers (ΔN). The changes that occur are the result of the sum of the individuals born (R) minus those dying (M) during the interval, the growth (G) of the individuals in the population, and of the net difference between emigration (E) and immigration (I).
