We review results on the evolution of cooperation based on the iterated Prisoner's Dilemma. Coevolution of strategies is discussed both in situations where everyone plays against everyone, and for spatial games. Simple artificial ecologies are constructed by incorporating an explicit resource flow and predatory interactions into models of coevolving strategies. Properties of food webs are reviewed, and we discuss what artificial ecologies can teach us about community structure.
