STOCHASTIC PREDATION MODEL WITH DEPLETION Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • AbstractA stochastic model is developed for the expected number of prey taken by a single predator when prey depletion is apparent. The so-called random predator equation with prey exploitation of Royama and Rogers is compared with the stochastic model. The numerical comparisons illustrate situations where the deterministic model provides adequate and inadequate approximations.
