Business model pivoting: How women entrepreneurs leverage opportunities generated by the COVID-19 pandemic

The Covid-19 pandemic is unique in the severity of its impact disrupting global supply chains, international trade and investment, health, and education. The impacts of crises are never gender-neutral, and Covid-19 is no exception. Research indicates that the pandemic has disproportionately affected women entrepreneurs who face unprecedented challenges as their firms tend to be younger and smaller.

Conservation is a noisy business: modelling the effects of stochasticity on wildlife management decisions

To conserve species in disturbed natural environments, we need to use mathematical models to predict the consequences of different interventions. Unfortunately, these models are based on partial information of complex systems, and the systems themselves are subject to substantial observational and process noise.We often use ordinary differential equations to describe ecosystems, like the classic logistic growth model:dn/dt = r n (1 - n / k)However, these models are deterministic, and they assume we know the values of the key parameters …
