Description

The spatial spread of pollen is modeled by transport equations from atmospheric physics. These equations are coupled with a population dynamic and genetic model. The resulting model consists of a set of coupled partial differential equations which is solved by finite element methods. Due to recent advances in software tools it is possible to solve complex systems of partial differential equations within reasonable computing time. Simultaneous simulation of spatial spread and population genetics enable the evaluation of anti-resistance management strategies.

Modeling spatial spread of genetic information via pollen dispersal: coupling of population dynamics and genetics
