The fairly realistic three species food chain model studied in another paper (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.
