A Three Species Ecological Model with a Predator and Two Preying Species

Full Text PDF


The present paper is devoted to an analytical study of a three species ecological model in which a predator is preying on the other two species which are mutually helping each other. In addition to that, all the three species are provided with an alternate food. The model is characterized by a set of first order non-linear differential equations. All the possible equilibrium points of the model have been derived and the local and global stability for the positive equilibrium point is discussed and supported by the numerical simulation using the MATLAB.
