Title

A fresh look at the history of mathematical ecology

Abstract

In my talk I will review some crucial steps, based on mathematical reasoning, that laid foundations of today's theoretical ecology. I will start with the Lotka-Volterra predator-prey model and will review some subsequent research. I will focus on research by F.G.Gause, a Russian biologist, who made some important discoveries on which today's ecology builds.

This talk aims to bridge ecology with mathematics at an undergraduate level.
