Applied and Computational Math Seminar

Single and Multispecies Persistence in the Face of Environmental Uncertainty

William Cuello, UC Davis

Location:  Hill 425
Date & time: Friday, 11 October 2019 at 12:00PM - 1:00PM

Abstract:  I will be presenting my work on the analyses of single and multispecies systems in fluctuating environments. For the first half of the presentation, I will present my work on predicting average, germination rates of 10 bet-hedging Sonoran Desert annuals; here, annuals hedge their bets by keeping a fraction of their seeds dormant to buffer against uncertain amounts of annual rainfall. For the second half, I will present the mathematical framework I have developed for analyzing classes of multispecies, stochastic models. This framework provides a step-by-step process in which one can determine whether a system of species will stochastically persist.
