Abstract: The production of complex bird song is commonly achieved through neuromuscular activity of respiratory, syringeal and craniomandibular systems. According to nonlinear dynamics theory, however, complexity can also emerge spontaneously from very simp..[more]..

The expansion velocity of the Collared Dove Streptopelia decaocto population in europe.
Author(s): Hengeveld R. & Van den Bosch F.
Abstract: Invasion models have been developed and applied for a long time. As presently existing models have serious drawbacks, another, more general mathematical model of range expansion has been developed. Using information on reproduction, survival, and dis..[more]..
