Abstract

Invasive species propagation is a common phenomenon, and a major question is how humans would stop its propagation in the most cost-effective manner. This package includes software and simulation results to find the optimal shape of the suppression function under certain conditions.

This package accompanies the paper "Optimizing the use of suppression zones for containment of invasive species" by Adam Lampert and Andrew Liebhold. In particular, it includes the complete code for generating Figs. 2-4 in the paper. The file front_complete_code.zip includes the entire code. The file simulation_results.zip includes the results.

Methods

The code was written by Adam Lampert.

Usage Notes

Opening and running the code requires an installation of Matlab (2021b for Windows or similar).
