A prototype population dynamics model with cyclic domination of four species and empty sites is proposed for studying transition to synchronization. At the mean-field level the dynamics shows quasiperiodicity and chaos depending on the parameter values. The realization of the model on a square lattice shows that spatial restrictions and intrinsic… CONTINUE READING
