Competition between AB sensitive (ABS)(blue) and AB producing (ABP) (red) populations. Raising the response threshold (TAB) of an antibiotic producing eavesdropping species leads to stable coexistence with the target ABS species (the members of which are activated at threshold TR). a eavesdropping with equal signal thresholds, leads to exclusion of the eavesdropped species; b eavesdropping after raising the threshold of the eavesdropper for foreign signal leads to coexistence between the species
