There has been growing interest in the study of L evy ights observed in the movements of biological organisms performing random walks while searching for other organisms. Here, we approach the problem of what is the best statistical strategy for optimizing the encounter rate between “searcher” and “target” organisms—either of the same or of di9erent species—in terms of a limiting generalized searcher–target model (e.g., predator-prey, mating partner, pollinator– ower). In this context, we… CONTINUE READING
