We have analyzed the interplay between noise and periodic modulations in a classical Lotka-Volterra model of two-species competition. We have found that the consideration of noise changes drastically the behavior of the system and leads to new situations which have no counterpart in the deterministic case. Among others, noise is responsible for temporal oscillations, spatial patterns, and the enhancement of the response of the system via stochastic resonance.
