Effects of periodic increase of prey population in a predator-prey model
MetadataShow full item record
© 2015, Gh. Asachi Technical University of Iasi.We started from a prey-predator model, where a periodic variation in the number of prey and predators is possible, without perturbation. We followed the line that periodically we carried out an overpopulation of prey. In general it is expected that this fact will increase the populations both of prey and of predator. We try to understand the way in which the overpopulation of prey can change the average number of prey and predators. In terms of application, such increase of the population of prey is usually a less expensive solution for supporting the ecological diversity.

Physiological and behavioural responses of Australian and exotic prey to the scent of native and introduced predatorsMella, Valentina S. A. (2009)This study examined the physiological and behavioural effects of a stress-inducing stimulus (predator odour) on potential prey species (Australian native and exotic). The aim was to determine if differences in the response ...

Behavioural responses of free-ranging western grey kangaroos (Macropus fuliginosus) to olfactory cues of historical and recently introduced predatorsMella, V.; Cooper, Christine; Davies, Stephen (2013)Predation risk influences foraging decisions and time allocation of prey species, and may result in habitat shifts from potentially dangerous to safer areas. We examined a wild population of western grey kangaroos (Macropus ...
