Bifurcation analysis of a predator-prey system involving group defence. (English) Zbl 0657.92015
The carrying capacity k of the environment for the prey-predator interaction model with group defence of the form \[ \dot x=x g(x,k)-y p(x),\quad \dot y=y(-s+q(x)) \] is considered as a parameter to discuss the structure of the solutions. A good analysis of the model is exhibited and among others Hopf bifurcation, convergence and extinction of the predator coming from too much enrichment of the environment are investigated.
