Abstract

It is shown that a trick introduced by H. R. Thieme [6] to study a one-species integral equation model with a nonmonotone operator can be used to show that some multispecies reaction-diffusion systems which are cooperative for small population densities but not for large ones have a spreading speed. The ideas are explained by considering a model for the interaction between ungulates and grassland.
