Abstract

We introduce a notion of attractor adapted to dynamical processes as they are studied in community-ecological models and their computer simulations. This attractor concept is modeled after that of Ruelle as presented in [11] and [12]. It incorporates the fact that in an immigration-free community populations can go extinct at low values of their densities.
