In this paper two interacting species in presence of adaptation (dormancy of the predators such as resting eggs) has been discussed. The dormant stage is an equipment to survive in harsh environment. We have discussed the stability analysis of system without diffusion and in presence of diffusion. Our numerical investigation reveals that above the critical value of interference among the zooplankton the system become stable. Spatiotemporal pattern shows a transient complex spatiotemporal pattern by increasing the time and space.
