We consider two types of Penna model populations: VA, where the Verhulst factor is applied to the entire population, and VB, for which Verhulst is applied to newborns only. Resources are shared by summing both populations during coevolution. We determined a relative threshold carrying capacity for VB that still drives VA to extinction.
