Spatial dynamics of a diffusive predator-prey model with stage structure

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • In this paper, we propose a nonlocal and time-delayed reaction-diffusion predator-prey model with stage structure. It is assumed that prey individuals undergo two stages, immature and mature, and the conversion of consumed prey biomass into predator biomass has a retardation. In terms of the principal eigenvalue of nonlocal elliptic eigenvalue problems, we establish the uniform persistence and global extinction for the model. In particular, the uniform persistence implies the existence of positive steady states. Finally, we investigate a specially spatially homogeneous predator-prey system and show the complicated dynamics of the system due to the non-local delay in the prey equation.
