Random disturbance, numerical scheme, biodiversity, dynamical system, stochastic, deterministic dynamical system.


The effect of a random disturbance on the ecosystem is one of the oldest scientific observations of which its effect on biodiversity is no exception. We have used ODE 45 numerical scheme to tackle this problem. The novel results that we have obtained have not been seen elsewhere; these are presented and fully discussed quantitatively.
