Abstract:

Organisms often grow, migrate and compete in liquid environments, as well as on solid surfaces. However, relatively little is known about what happens when competing species are mixed and compressed by fluid turbulence. In this talk I review recent work on population dynamics and population genetics in compressible velocity fields of one and two dimensions. By using state of the art numerical simulations, I discuss how external environmental forces (such as turbulence) can dramatically changes the basic features of population dynamics.
