Can calculate the equilibria for species 2 similarly to those for species 1; dN 2 /dt = 0 where K 2 = N 2 , or where K 2 = b N 1 , or at any combination of N 1 and N 2 that’s equivalent to K 2 .

Predation “classical” predation (an animal killing and eating another) parasitism (a smaller organism eats a larger one, and may or may not kill its host) herbivory (an animal eats (part of) a plant, and may or may not kill it disease (a really small organism derives its nutrition from its host, and may or may not kill it)
