The stochastic modelling of kleptoparasitism using a Markov process

Article English OPEN
Broom, M.; Crowe, M. L.; Fitzgerald, M. R.; Rychtar, J.;

Kleptoparasitism, the stealing of food items from other animals, is a common behaviour observed across a huge variety of species, and has been subjected to significant modelling effort. Most such modelling has been deterministic, effectively assuming an infinite populat... View more
