年龄结构浮游植物–浮游动物平衡点Age-Structured Phytoplankton-Zooplankton Equilibrium



In this paper, we study an age-structured phytoplankton-zooplankton model to describe the dy-namics between the two populations. The model is described by considering age-structured zoop-lankton, time delay and harvesting effect. The aim of this paper is to understand the effect of age structure on this model. Sufficient conditions are obtained for the existence of the equilibrium. It is shown that the equilibrium state of the model is related to the age of zooplankton.
