Title

The Beverton-Holt Dynamic Equation

Abstract

The Cushing-Henson conjectures on time scales are presented and verified. The central part of these conjectures asserts that based on a model using the dynamic Beverton-Holt equation, a periodic environment is deleterious for the population. The proof technique is as follows. First, the Beverton-Holt equation is identified as a logistic dynamic equation. The usual substitution transforms this equation into a linear equation. Then the proof is completed using a recently established dynamic version of the generalized Jensen inequality.
