On the cover:

Explaining biodiversity in nature is a fundamental problem in ecology. An outstanding challenge is embodied in the so-called competitive exclusion principle: the number of consumer species in steady coexistence cannot exceed that of resources. The fact that competitive exclusion is rarely observed in natural ecosystems has not been fully understood. Here, Wang et al. show that by forming chasing pairs and chasing triplets among the consumers and resources in the consumption process, the competitive exclusion principle can be naturally violated. See Wang et al., vol. 23, 2020.
