The logistic growth of populations is characterized by an initial approximately exponential growth of the number of individuals till they reach an equilibrium value around which they fluctuate. This equilibrium value mainly depends on the carrying capacity of the population. In this work we propose a controlled branching process (CBP) to model population logistic growths by considering control laws defined by binomial distributions with a success probability depending on the current population size, the carrying capacity and the offspring mean. Stochastic versions of well-known deterministic models are obtained as particular cases.
Our aim is to estimate the posterior distributions of the main parameters of such a CBP using approximate Bayesian computation. We analyze real data sets.
