A continuous, dual life stage, logistic model for generic populations of wildlife is presented in order to assess the non-stochastic effects of radiation on repairable radiation damage, reproductive ability and mortality. Population change is modelled as a function of survival, fecundity, natural mortality and small density 'Allee' effects. Radiation-induced damages in young and adult life stages are modelled by means of a recovery compartment representing the organism's repairing system. Direct effect of radiation on fecundity is also incorporated in the model.
