## Why Is Alfred J. Lotka Influential?

(Suggest an Edit or Addition)According to Wikipedia, Alfred James Lotka was an American mathematician, physical chemist, and statistician, famous for his work in population dynamics and energetics. A biophysicist, Lotka is best known for his proposal of the predator–prey model, developed simultaneously but independently of Vito Volterra. The Lotka–Volterra model is still the basis of many models used in the analysis of population dynamics in ecology.
