The modified Leslie-Gower and Holling-type II predator-prey model is generalized in the context of ecoepidemiology, with disease spreading only among the prey species. A new feature is introduced, the intraspecific competition of infected prey. All the equilibria are characterized and the existence of a Hopf bifurcation at the coexistence equilibrium is shown.
A three-component model consisting on one-prey and two-predator populations is considered with a Holling type II response function incorporating a constant proportion of prey refuge. We also consider the competition among predators for their food (prey) and shelter. The essential mathematical features of the model have been analyzed thoroughly in terms of stability and bifurcations arising in some selected situations. Threshold values for some parameters indicating the feasibility and stability conditions of some equilibria are determined. The range of significant parameters under which the system admits different types of bifurcations is investigated. Numerical illustrations are performed in order to validate the applicability of the model under consideration.
An ecoepidemiological model in which the disease can be transmitted from one population to another one is considered. Linear harvesting on all the populations is considered. By means of numerical simulations the role of the epidemiological parameters as well as that of harvesting are investigated. Some relevant consequences of harvesting on the system dynamics are discovered.
We propose a mathematical model for prey–predator interactions allowing prey refuge. A prey–predator model is considered in the present investigation with the inclusion of Holling type-II response function incorporating a prey refuge depending on both prey and predator species. We have analyzed the system for different interesting dynamical behaviors, such as, persistent, permanent, uniform boundedness, existence, feasibility of equilibria and their stability. The ranges of the significant parameters under which the system admits a Hopf bifurcation are investigated. The system exhibits Hopf-bifurcation around the unique interior equilibrium point of the system. The explicit formula for determining the stability, direction and periodicity of bifurcating periodic solutions are also derived with the use of both the normal form and the center manifold theory. The theoretical findings of this study are substantially validated by enough numerical simulations. The ecological implications of the obtained results are discussed as well.
