We study the role of the adaptive movement strategy in promoting biodiversity in cyclic models described by the rock-paper-scissors game rules. We assume that individuals of one out of the species may adjust their movement to escape hostile regions and stay longer in their comfort zones. Running a series of stochastic simulations, we calculate the alterations in the spatial patterns and population densities in scenarios where not all organisms are physically or cognitively conditioned to… 

Locally adaptive aggregation of organisms under death risk in rock-paper-scissors models

Trade-off between reproduction and mobility prolongs organisms' survival in rock-paper-scissors models

We study the spatial rock-paper-scissors model, where resource competitors' cyclic dominance impacts organisms' energy levels. Our model assumes that failed selection interactions can lead to energy

Impact of reproduction-mobility trade-off on biodiversity in rock-paper-scissors models in changing environmental conditions

We investigate a tritrophic system in which organisms' energy depletion, resulting from failed selection attempts, leads to a partial loss of capacity to win the cyclic spatial game. The energy

How local antipredator response unbalances the rock-paper-scissors model.

Antipredator behavior is a self-preservation strategy present in many biological systems, where individuals join the effort in a collective reaction to avoid being caught by an approaching predator.

Mobility restrictions in response to local epidemic outbreaks in rock-paper-scissors models

Running stochastic simulations, this work quantifies the changes in spatial patterns induced by unevenness in the cyclic game introduced by the mobility restriction strategy of organisms of one out of the species to help biologists understand the impact of evolutionary defensive strategies in ecosystems during an epidemic.
