The coevolution of two phytoplankton species on a single resource: allelopathy as a pseudo-mixotrophy.

Abstract:

Without the top-down effects and the external/physical forcing, a stable coexistence of two phytoplankton species under a single resource is impossible - a result well known from the principle of competitive exclusion. Here I demonstrate by analysis of a mathematical model that such a stable coexistence in a homogeneous media without any external factor would be possible, at least theoretically, provided (i) one of the two species is toxin producing thereby has an allelopathic effect on the o...
