  • Abstract : The self-assembly of ecological communities on complex spatial networks from an initial species can be mathematically modelled by a combination of ecological and evolutionary processes. We investigate how the topology of the spatial network influences the structure of the co-evolved populations, and hence the stability of the resulting meta-community of species against perturbations including invasion, extinction, patch removal, and alterations to the spatial environment. In response, different nature reserve configurations can simulate biodiversity conservation strategies.
