There are two pairs of competing species of mayflies. Species A and B are competing, and have carrying capacities of 2,000 and 800 respectively. The competition coefficient of species B on A is 0.5 and the competition coefficient of A on B is 0.25. Species C and D are separately competing; these have carrying capacities of 10,000 and 20,000 respectively. The competition coefficient of species D on C is 0.2 and the competition coefficient of C on D is 0.1. Based on the Lotka-Volterra equation, which of these pairs of species can coexist? How do you compute it?
Both pairs of species, look up that formula and ask if we get it on the test
