The talk will discuss the lysis-lysogeny choice from a game theoretical viewpoint, suggesting that the optimal frequency of lysogeny is close to the likelihood that the environment of the phage collapses. Subsequently I will discuss possible ways to understand sustainability of virulent phages, including limits for the diversity of virulent phage species in a given environment.
