  journal={Theoretical Ecology},
The spatiotemporal dynamics of a space- and time-discrete predator–prey system is considered theoretically using both analytical methods and computer simulations. The prey is assumed to be affected by the strong Allee effect. We reveal a rich variety of pattern formation scenarios. In particular, we show that, in a predator–prey system with the strong Allee effect for prey, the role of space is crucial for species survival. Pattern formation is observed both inside and outside of the Turing… CONTINUE READING
