For the Verhulst model, the oscillations are caused by the lag effect described above and not observed in the logistic model (1-24). As the next section will show, logistic equations are capable of generating oscillations when explicit delay is introduced. Our next exercise presents a discrete population model with long-term behavior similar to the continuous logistic population model.

Biological Bulletin 85, 116–140. ) to offset the dependence r(t) ¼ r(P(t)) to account for this time lag. In nonmathematical terms, we say that the present value of r(t) is determined by the population size at a specific time in the past. The simplest way to model this is to postulate that r(t) ¼ r(P(t À D)), where D > 0 is the measured delay. In the example above, D will be equal to nine months—a baby’s average gestational period.
