Differential inclusions arising in population biology are analysed and a numerical approach to solve the corresponding initial value problems is proposed. These differential inclusions originate from optimal myopic strategies and from projecting differential equations onto a viability set. We show that such differential inclusions may piecewise be considered either as ordinary differential equations or as differential-algebraic equations with Index 2. The numerical method is based on this observation. Simulations for one population of predators feeding on two populations of prey and for a system of two competing populations whose growth is constrained by a limited resource are given.
