Predator cannibalism can give rise to regular spatial pattern in a predator-prey system. (English) Zbl 1183.92084
Summary: One of the central issues in ecology is the study of spatial pattern in the distribution of organisms. Thus, in this paper, spatial pattern of a predator-prey system with predator cannibalism is considered. By mathematical analysis, we obtain the condition for emerging Turing pattern formation. Furthermore, numerical simulations reveal that large variety of different spatiotemporal dynamics emerge as the consequence of the interaction of Holling type II with predator cannibalism. The obtained results show that predator cannibalism has great influence on the spatial pattern formation. In other words, the regular pattern is induced by predator cannibalism. Moreover, we find that although the environment is heterogeneous, the system still exhibits Turing patterns, which means the pattern is self-organized. This may help us better understand the dynamics of predator-prey interactions in a real environment.
