Abstract

We consider a two-competitor/one-prey model in which both competitors exhibit a general functional response and one of the competitors exhibits a density-dependent mortality rate. It is shown that the two competitors can coexist upon the single prey. As an example, we consider a two-competitor/one-prey model with a Holling II functional response. Our results demonstrate that density-dependent mortality in one of the competitors can prevent competitive exclusion. Moreover, by constructing a Liapunov function, the system has a globally stable positive equilibrium. To cite this article: S. Ruan et al., C. R. Biologies 330 (2007).
