Lotka–Volterra Interspecific Competition

Part of the Use R! book series (USE R)


Different species frequently compete for limiting resources, and as a result have negative impacts on each other. For example, change in species composition during secondary succession (Fig. 5.1) appears mediated by, among other things, a species' ability to intercept light, grow, and cast shade over other species. This chapter addresses very simple ways to represent such interactions between species.
