The "random environment" concept is used to model the growth of several interdependent populations. The vital rates are assumed to follow a multi-variate Ornstein-Uhlenbeck process; important properties of this process and of the integrated process (representing log of population growth) are developed. Application to a predator-prey situation is considered and a technique for the estimation of unknown parameters is developed.
