Modeling Population Dispersal of Reef Species

Institution

Abstract

The extinction of reef species due to over fishing is a major problem in today’s world. We are using modified diffusion equations to create predictive models that will help conservation biologists in Belize to design better and more efficient nature conservatories. These models describe the dispersal of populations of organisms using ideas from Fickian diffusion. Currently, we are focusing on a certain species of conch from Belize.
