Description

Ecological systems comprise an astonishing diversity of species that cooperate or compete with each other forming complex mutual de- pendencies. The minimum requirements to maintain a large species diversity on long time scales are in general unknown. Using lichen communities as an example, we propose a model for the evolution of mutually excluding organisms that compete for space.
