Summary
In recent years, many species have been dimished rapidly due to environmental destruction, and it has become an urgent task to stop and restore the loss of biodiversity. However, in order to succeed in conserving biodiversity, it is first necessary to understand how ecosystems are maintained. Traditionally, evolutionary studies and ecology have independently studied genetic diversity within a species, which is a major component of biodiversity, and the mechanisms that maintain inter-species diversity (species diversity). In this study, we aim to comprehensively understand the mechanisms that maintain biodiversity by analyzing the interactions between them using mathematical models.
