Density Dependence and the Microtine Cycle II. A Discrete Time Model for a Synchronously Reproducing Population

Abstract

Two versions of a simple discrete time, density-dependent population dynamic model are developed and analyzed. Analysis demonstrates that regular density cycles may result but that these most probably are different from those seen in cyclic microtines. Some parameter combinations may, however, be found so that cycles with a sufficiently long period and a sufficiently large amplitude are generated.
