Abstract

We deal with the global stability for a well-known population-toxicant model. We make use of a geometrical approach to the global stability analysis for ordinary differential equation which is based on the use of a higher-order generalization of the Bendixson's criterion. We obtain sufficient conditions for the global stability of the unique nontrivial equilibrium. These conditions are expressed in terms of a generic functional describing the population dynamics. In the special case of a logistic-like population dynamics, we get conditions which improve the ones previously known, obtained by means of the Lyapunov direct method.
