A Two-Dimensional Predator-Prey Model

Ronald Banzon


A spatio-temporal predator-prey model is devised from an existing space-independent model that was modified to include the phenomenon of migration. A tolerance level, which depends on the amount of resources, is proposed as the motivation for the migration of the prey. The change from a rectangular to a cylindrical confinement was interpreted as an increase in mobility. The model supports the idea of increased predator population with mobility.
