On a generalized Yorke condition for scalar delayed population models

• For a scalar delayed differential equation $\dot x(t)=f(t,x_t)$, we give sufficient conditions for the global attractivity of its zero solution. Some technical assumptions are imposed to insure boundedness of solutions and attractivity of non-oscillatory solutions. For controlling the behaviour of oscillatory solutions, we require a very general condition of Yorke type, together with a 3/2-condition. The results are particularly interesting when applied to scalar differential equations with delays which have served as models in populations dynamics, and can be written in the general form $\dot x(t)=(1+x(t))F(t,x_t)$. Applications to several models are presented, improving known results in the literature.
