摘要

In this paper, a simple model is used to demonstrate that the dormancy of predators dependent on the rate of decline in the prey density can strongly stabilize the population dynamics of prey-predator systems. This result may help explain why the population dynamics of phytoplanktonzooplankton (-resting eggs) is frequently observed to be strongly stable in nature. Moreover, it is numerically shown that the model can have two stable prey-predator cycles with different amplitudes and periods, which suggests that prey-predator (-dormant predator) systems have the potential to generate multiple stable cycles without any other mechanism.
