We have developed an individual-based evolving predator-prey ecosystem simulation that integrates, for the first time, a complex individual behaviour model, an evolutionary mechanism and a speciation process, at an acceptable computational cost. In this article, we analyse the species abundance patterns observed in the communities generated by our simulation, based on Fisher’s logseries. We propose a rigorous methodology for testing abundance data against the logseries. We show that our… CONTINUE READING
