Abstract

Mathematical models of allelopathic interactions in aquatic environments are surveyed. Allelopathy literally means mutual harm or suffering. The term allelopathy is used in a broad sense and includes phytotoxicity and autotoxicity. The literature on mathematical modeling of aquatic allelopathy offers interesting perspectives. But little has been done so far to put in one place various mathematical representations of aquatic allelopathic effects. This survey attempts to fill that gap. I also discuss whether and how these mathematical models of aquatic allelopathy could be applied to terrestrial habitats. Researchers, ecologists, marine biologists, applied mathematicians, oceanographers, environmental managers, plant physiologists, and systems analysts are henceforth encouraged to use the present work to improve the accuracy of their models involving allelopathy.

Keywords: Allelopathy; Phytotoxicity; Autotoxicity; Mathematical representations; Aquatic allelopathy; Terrestrial allelopathy
