Strong relationships between yield and dynamic behavior of tritrophic food chains are pointed out by analyzing the classical Rosenzweig-MacArthur model. On the one hand, food chains are subdivided into undersupplied and oversupplied categories, the first being those in which a marginal increase of nutrient supply to the bottom produces a marginal increase of mean yield at the top. On the other hand, a detailed bifurcation analysis proves that dynamic complexity first increases with nutrient… CONTINUE READING
