Abstract

The development of a population of one or more species of animals or plants is a manageable example permitting the study of system dynamics. Here, the number of individuals of the respective species define the state space—the term “space” is somewhat misleading since it is not a spatial resolution of the considered domain but instead it is assumed that the rates of increase and decrease of the population depend only on the size of the populations.
