Crossover in spreading behavior due to memory in population dynamics. (English) Zbl 1448.92243
Summary: The reaction-diffusion equation is one of the possible ways for modeling animal movement, where the reactive part stands for the population growth and the diffusive part for random dispersal of the population. However, a reaction-diffusion model may not represent all aspects of the spatial dynamics, because of the existence of distinct mechanisms that can affect the movement, such as spatial memory, which results in a bias for one direction of dispersal. This bias is modeled through an advective term on an advection-reaction-diffusion equation. Thus, considering the effects of memory on the population spread, we propose a model composed of a coupled partial differential equation system with two equations: one for the population dynamics and the other for the memory density distribution. For the population growth, we use either the exponential or logistic growth function. The analytic approach shows that for the exponential and logistic growth, the minimum traveling wave speeds are the same with or without memory dynamics in which the variation of memory is infinitesimal. From the numerical analysis, we explore how our parameters, memory, growth rate, and carrying capacity, affect the population redistribution. The combinations of these parameters result in a redistribution pattern of the population associated with either diffusive or superdiffusive and imply the dispersal is faster than the diffusion. Further, in the parameter-space defined by memory and growth rate, we have shown that memory is a factor that switches the dynamics between two spreading behaviors, one faster than the other.
