Abstract

It is well known that rapid growth of population and population augmented industrialization has become a horrible threat for our environment causing the decline of forestry resources. We propose a mathematical model to study the effect of population and population density dependent industrialization on forestry resources. It is assumed that the industrialization grows logistically but its growth is further enhanced due to over population. It is shown that if the population and associated industrialization increase, the density of forestry resources decreases. Numerical simulation has also been conducted to support the analytical findings.

Keywords: Population, Industrialization, Forestry Resources, Stability Analysis, Numerical Simulation
