Density-dependent dispersal in multiple species metapopulations

1. Depto. de Matemática Pura e Aplicada, Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul, Av. Bento Gon¸calves, 9500. Bairro Agronomia, Porto Alegre, RS

A multiple species metapopulations model with density-dependent dispersal is presented. Assuming the network configuration matrix to be diagonizable we obtain a decoupling of the associated perturbed system from the homogeneous state. It was possible to analyze in detail the instability induced by the density-dependent dispersal in two classes of $k$-species interaction models: a hierarchically organized competitive system and an age-structured model.
