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.
