The fairly realistic three species food chain model studied in
(click here), and
based on the Leslie-Gower scheme,
is investigated by using tools borrowed from the nonlinear dynamical systems
theory. It is observed that two co-existing attractors may be generated by this
ecological model. A type-I intermittency is characterized and a homoclinic
orbit is found.
Typical strange attractor exhibited by this system.
