Summary Some properties of community structure are explored using co-evolutionary theory. We consider mathematical models of food webs in which all species in a community adopt foraging behaviours and antipredator behaviours that maximize individual fitness. If the antipredator behaviour of a prey is effective against all its enemies, the number of prey-predator links in a food web must bc less than the sum of the numbers of prey and predator spccics. However, if an increase in a prey's… CONTINUE READING
