Chesson and Warner (1981) proposed a lottery competition model and
showed that temporal variability (or seasonality) in environments is
of the important factors limiting the number of coexisting species.
this talk, we investigate the dynamics of periodic lottery
models with period k, and show that n species can coexist if and only
if k>n or k=n. Furthermore, we consider a generalization of this result.
