- meat eaters
- predator–prey equations
A pair of first-order differential equations.
Two species interact, one as a predator and the other as prey.
Populations change throughout time according to the pair of equations
1.The prey population finds ample food at all times.
2.The food supply of the predator population depends entirely on the size of the prey population.
3.The rate of change of population is proportional to its size.
4.During the process, the environment does not change in favour of one species and genetic adaptation is inconsequential.
5.Predators have limitless appetite.
