ABSTRACT In this paper, we consider a modified delay differential equation model of the growth of n-species of plankton having competitive and allelopathic effects on each other. We first obtain the sufficient conditions which guarantee the permanence of the system. As a corollary, for periodic case, we obtain a set of delay-dependent condition which ensures the existence of at least one positive periodic solution of the system. After that, by means of a suitable Lyapunov functional, sufficient conditions are derived for the global attractivity of the system. For the two-dimensional case, under some suitable assumptions, we prove that one of the components will be driven to extinction while the other will stabilize at a certain solution of a logistic equation. Examples show the feasibility of the main results.

    ABSTRACT: A two-species competitive system under the influence of random disturbance and toxic substances is studied theoretically and numerically. The existence of a stationary distribution, extinction, and stability of this model are considered. Our results show that both the environmental disturbance and toxic substances can destabilize biological populations. A set of sufficient conditions which guarantee that one of the species is driven to extinction while the other is stable in the mean is illustrated. Numerical simulations are also presented to illustrate the feasibility of our main results.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, we investigate a non-autonomous competitive phytoplankton model with periodic coefficients in deterministic and stochastic environment, respectively. We prove the existence of at least one positive periodic solution together with it’s global asymptotic stability. The existence of periodic solution has been obtained by using the continuation theorem of coincidence degree theory proposed by Gaines and Mawhin. We formulate the corresponding stochastic model by perturbing the growth rate parameters by white noise terms. We prove that all the higher order moments of the solution to the stochastic system is uniformly bounded which ensure that the solution of the stochastic system is stochastically bounded. We provide easily verifiable sufficient conditions for non-persistence in mean, extinction and stochastic permanence of the stochastic system. Sufficient condition for permanence shows that if the noise intensity is very low then the solution of the stochastic system persists in the periodic coexistence domain of the deterministic system. We perform exhaustive numerical simulations to validate our analytical findings.
