A class of lumped parameter models to describe the local dynamics in a controlled environment of a two-trophic chain is considered. The class is characterized by a trophic function (functional response of predator to the abundance of prey) depending on the ratio of prey biomass x and a linear function of predator biomass y: f(qx/[(1-rho)k + rhoy]), where q is the efficiency of the predation process, k is a reference biomass, and rho (0 < or = rho < or = 1) specifies the predation model.
