The effect of migration on the spatial structure of intraguild predation in metapopulations

15 August 2009

We consider the effects of migration on intraguild predation (IGP) via lattice models and pair approximation. The following results can be found: there exists asymmetry between two consumers’ migration effects on the spatial structure of IGP; migration of each consumer reduces its own clumping degree; the spatial structure is influenced by the ecological neighborhood.
