Dynamic behavior of a two-dimensionnal system modeling a predator-prey food chain with modified Holling-Tanner scheme is analyzed into two parts. In the first one, we study the system without diffusion (with no-flux boundary conditions). We establish assumptions under which we have boundedness of solutions, existence of a positively invariant and attrating set, the global stability of the coexisting interior equilibrum via a Lyapunov fonction, and, finally, the exitence of limit cycles is discussed. In the second part, we study the system with term of reaction-diffusion. We introduce criteria for permanence (uniform persistence and dissipativity).
