The velocity of spatial population expansion. (English) Zbl 0732.92026
The authors study the velocity with which an invading population spreads over space and give modelling frameworks that allow them to calculate the (asymptotic) velocity of population expansion from experimentally observed quantities like the probability for an individual to survive to a certain age and the settlement pattern of juveniles. The approximation formulas presented are used to study some real-life examples. No proofs are given but the interesting results are based on formal and numerical calculations and heuristic arguments.
