Legumes at Loggerheads: Modelling Competition Between Two Strains of Sub-Clover

  • Anthony G. Pakes
Part of the Mathematical Modelling book series (MMO, volume 6)


In essence this paper is a précis of a substantial investigation of deterministic modelling of two strains of sub-clover which interact competitively at the time they set their seed.
