Predicting when populations go extinct

A new preprint from Stuart Johnston, with Mat Simpson (QUT), looks at a new approximation method for birth-death-movement random walks. Normally, random walk models are approximated via an ODE (i.e. logistic growth), which predicts the population size quite well. However, because … Continue reading
