Allee Effect in DiscretePrey-Predator Interactions with

A.George Maria Selvam, R. Dhineshbabu, J.Maria Thangaraj


This paper investigates the behavior of a Prey-Predator system where the prey population is subjected to Harvesting.The fixed points and their local stability are analyzed.The phase portraits are obtained for different sets of parameter values . Bifurcation and time plot diagrams are plotted to show complex dynamical behavior of the system in selected ranges. Numerical simulations are performed forAllee effect with harvesting on prey.
