What makes populations stabilize? What makes them fluctuate? Are populations in complex ecosystems more stable than populations in simple ecosystems?. Titre/Auteur(s), Stability and complexity in model ecosystems [Livre] / by Robert M . May. Adresse bibliographique, Princeton: Princeton University Press, No complexity–stability relationship in empirical ecosystems (a) Equivalence between Ecopath and Lotka–Volterra models: simplified.In this case, stability increases with d, regardless of the value of n e and it does so additively (at least in cases where d is very small) in comparison with the criterion for isolated ecosystems. In this case, environmental heterogeneity is not important—emigration alone is the factor improving the stability of meta-ecosystems and its importance will depend on its magnitude relative to Cited by: Stability and complexity in model meta-ecosystems Dominique Gravel 1, *, Franc ¸ ois Massol 2,3, * & Mathew A.

May challenged this view in the ’sc by showing mathematically that in model ecosystems stability decreases with the number of species in a community and can therefore not be regarded as a straightforward consequence of complexity.
