Metamodels for Transdisciplinary Analysis of Wildlife Population Dynamics

Figure 5

Population trajectories for a prey species subjected to different levels of predation.

Mean prey population size through time is predicted by a single-species PVA model that assumed a fixed predator population size. Simulations were run for predator populations of 50, 60, 70, 80, and 100 individuals. The prey population was sustained at a size of N = 10000 or more if there were 80 or fewer predators.
