Much of what is known about Allee effects comes from mathematical models. This chapter deals with models of demographic Allee effects. It shows what types of model are available, what their underlying assumptions are, how they can be used, and how they have contributed to our understanding of the dynamical consequences of Allee effects, both in single-species populations and multiple-species communities. The chapter does not provide detailed information on how to develop and analyse any single model, nor discusses the structure and predictions of every model that has ever been used to study Allee effects. Rather, it is conceived as a sort of summary of a large amount of literature that has been published on models which address Allee effects: providing a comprehensive (if a little dense) overview of the topic.

Keywords:   mathematical model, model assumptions, dynamical consequences, single-species population, multiple-species community, demographic
