Abstract: 

A review of the use of branching process to obtain solutions
of analogues of the KPP-Fisher equation will be given. Motivated
by an interest in modeling population dynamics in Marine Protected Areas,
similar equations with discontinuous coefficients naturally arise. The
extension of the branching process approach to these problems pose new
questions, some of which might be open problems. This talk in based on
work with James Rekow and Patrick DeLeenheer.
