An interesting case study is the 200-mile limit for fisheries presented in Wan (1989, Mathematical Models and their Analysis (New York: Harper and Row)). It is commented upon, re-examined and solved in a different manner inspired by Turing's (1952, Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society London, B237, 37-72) paper as a suitable classroom example for undergraduate students taking a first course on mathematical modelling. Emphasis is made not only on the mathematics--always kept as elementary as possible--but also on interpretations, explanations and translation into plain language of the mathematical expressions and results.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/69881||ISSN:||1522-6514||DOI:||10.1080/03043790210166701||Source:||International Journal of Phytoremediation [ISSN 1522-6514], v. 27 (4), p. 401-407|
