A ratio-dependent predator-prey model is the one where the interaction term has the form
is the prey density,
is the predator density and
is a constant. The validity of such models is still debatable. Here, a one-prey two-predators model is studied. The authors argue that the ratio dependent model give two important realistic results: The first is the existence of a stable low density prey equilibrium. The second is a simultaneous extinction. The authors derive sufficient conditions for the competitive exclusion (one predator goes extinct). They also derive conditions for a predator to be a system saver, i.e. a predator whose introduction prevents the prey from going extinct. Moreover, conditions for total extinction and for coexistence are derived.
