In some populations there is no distinct breeding season, so reproduction takes place continually, which can make it problematic to keep track of all the new births. Create a model/equation that would enable you to take a census of the number of newborns over time of a continuously breeding population of your choice. Assume that juveniles and old females cannot reproduce. How would this change your model/equation?
Calculus techniques used:
- Age structured populations (Neuhauser, Claudia. Calculus for Biology and Medicine. New Jersey: Prentice Hall, 2000. 424)
- Applications of integration (Neuhauser, Claudia. Calculus for Biology and Medicine. New Jersey: Prentice Hall, 2000. 399)
