Reaction-diffusion equations modeling Predator-Prey interaction are of current interest. Standard approaches such as first-order (in time) finite difference schemes for approximating the solution are widely spread. Though, this paper shows that recent advance methods can be more favored. In this work, we have incorporated, throughout numerical comparison experiments, spectral methods, for the space discretization, in conjunction with second and fourth-order time integrating methods for approximating the solution of the reaction-diffusion differential equations. The results have revealed that these methods have advantages over the conventional methods, some of which to mention are: the ease of implementation, accuracy and CPU time.
