Equilibria and oscillations in age-structured population growth models (J.M. Cushing). Part IV - Community Ecology. Young predation and time delays (M. Saleem, V.S. Siddiqui and V. Gupta). Uniform persistence and global stability in models involving mutualism. I Predator-prey-mutualistic systems (H.I. Freedman, B. Rai). Part V - Resource Management. Dynamic interactions between economic, ecological and demographic variables (A. Cigno). Economic growth models: Effects of logistic population and technology (A. Shukla).

Description

This volume contains a cross-section of the papers presented at the International Symposium on Mathematical Modelling of Ecological, Environmental and Biological Systems held in Kanpur, India, in August 1985. The choice of topics emphasizes many aspects of ecological and environmental matters including air and water pollution, ecotoxicology, resource management, epidemiology, and population and community ecology.

It is intended that this volume will focus international attention upon some problems in the ecological and environmental sciences that can be impacted by mathematical modelling and analysis.
