Ecological Orbits

Lev Ginzburg

Mark Colyvan

Oxford University Press

There are practical consequences for the debate over the appropriate mathematical model of population growth. This chapter outlines a few of the possible applications of the inertial model. It suggests that some of the failures in conservation management may be due, in part, to a failure to appreciate the inertial nature of population growth and decline. The chapter also reflects on the relationship between theoretical and applied ecology.

Keywords:   conservation planning, inertial population growth, risk analysis, evolution, theoretical ecology, applied ecology
