1. General Model Information
Name: Lotka-Volterra Predator-Prey equations
Main medium: terrestrial
Main subject: population dynamics
Organization level: population
Type of model: ordinary differential equations
Keywords: species, predator, prey, population dynamics
Predator-prey models address the problem as to how the interaction beteen a
predator species and its food species, its prey, affects the population
dynamics of both parties in the interaction.
Usually the theories, as opposed to the real world, contains just
two species, one single specialist predator and its single resource.
The model you will be able to study here is of this kind.
In the simulation server you will be able to interactively
investigate the behaviour.
