Bifurcations and Control in a Singular Biological Economic Model

Part of the Lecture Notes in Control and Information Sciences book series (LNCIS, volume 421)


In the natural world, there are many species whose individuals have a life history that takes them through two stages, juvenile stage and adult stage. Individuals in each stage are identical in biological characteristics, and some vital rates (rates of survival, development, and reproduction) of individuals in a population almost always depend on stage structure. Furthermore, there is a strong interaction relationship between the mature population and the immature population , which is to some extent relevant to the persistence and extinction of the related population. Consequently, it is constructive to investigate the dynamics of such ecosystem without ignorance of stage structure for population.
