Spatial Analysis in Descriptive Models of Renewable Resource Management
AbstractThis paper adapts Turing analysis and applies it to dynamic bioeconomic problems where the interaction of coupled economic and ecological dynamics over space endogenously creates (or destroys) spatial heterogeneity. We examine the emergence of traveling wave solutions in open access fishery models, as well as the emergence of persistent spatial patterns in biomass/effort space caused by Turing instability. We also examine regulatory approaches for restoring spatial homogeneity.
