On predicting species yields in multispecies communities: Quantifying the accuracy of the linear Lotka-Volterra generalized model

Ecological Modelling, 2018, vol. 387, issue C, 154-162

Abstract: The linear generalized Lotka–Volterra equations (LGLVE) constitute the simplest theoretical framework for ecological communities involving different kinds of interspecific interactions ―e.g. competition, facilitation. These equations have been often criticized as being too simple to model real systems.
