Dynamics of a stage–structure Rosenzweig–MacArthur model with linear harvesting in prey and cannibalism in predator

Lazarus Kalvein Beay, Maryone Saija


A kind of stage-structure Rosenzweig–MacArthur model with linear harvesting in prey and cannibalism in predator is investigated in this paper. By analyzing the model, local stability of all possible equilibrium points is discussed. Moreover, the model undergoes a Hopf–bifurcation around the interior equilibrium point. Numerical simulations are carried out to illustrate our main results.
