Some species live specifically in linear habitats, such as hedgerows or road borders, which have the particularity to be very spatially constrained. These habitats thus have important ecological implications, as they often provide migration opportunities between different population patches and form spatial networks. My research focuses on the influence of the topology of these networks on the dynamics of the populations they support. I have started to investigate this problematic through a theoretic approach based on programming on the Matlab software.
After introducing the general context, I will present the first results of the spatial network simulations I have programmed so far, and what I am prospecting to do next, hoping it will generate an enriching discussion.
