Transmissible diseases are known to induce remarkable major behavioral changes in predator-prey systems. However, little attention has been paid to model such situations. The latter would allow to predict useful applications in both dynamics and control. Here the Holling-Tanner model is revisited to account for the influence of a transmissible disease, under the assumption that it spreads among the prey species only. We have found the equilibria and analyzed the behavior of the system around… CONTINUE READING
