Abstract

Allee effects are essential in the examination of populations and growth rates. In our examination, we will review the concept of Allee effects and distinguish the difference between what it means for them to be strong vs. weak. The primary analysis will focus on the Levins model for metapopulation dynamics while incorporating an Allee effect and the significance and possible consequences it predicts in the population dynamics.
