A Bug's Life: Competition Among Species Towards the Environment

Giovanni Bella

No 10269, Natural Resources Management Working Papers from Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei (FEEM)

Abstract: A model of different species competing for the same environment is presented, and possible explanations of peaceful coexistence or rather internecine conflicts are consequently derived. By means of a Lotka-Volterra dynamic system we describe the evolution of two populations (bees and locusts) that differently approach the management of those natural resources they contend for, and thus make a simple parable of today's societies playing the current environmental scenario.
