The research group in Population Dynamics

The research group in population dynamics has its roots in a traditional core research field of the department, branching processes. These in principle assume independence between individual lives and reproduction. Recent activities however centre around population size dependence of individual reproduction, thus introducing competition between individuals. We also study coalescent processes that model ancestral history of biological populations. Many of the mathematical results obtained by the group are inspired by important issues in
- population genetics,
- comparative phylogenetics,
- stochastic demography,
- conservation biology.
- adaptive evolution.
