We investigate a system of strongly coupled, degenerate parabolic equations, focusing on local and global existence, uniqueness and asymptotic behaviour of the solutions. Special attention is payed to the support properties of the solutions. The results are interpreted in terms of effects of certain interactions between biological populations.
