Sensitivity Analysis in Hyperparasitism with Environmental Fluctuation in Malaria Transmission

Arun Kumar


The present paper deals with the problem of enhancement of host fitness due to the effect of hyperparasitism. The experimental evidence for such situations is reviewed. Two mathematical models, host-parasite (two trophic) and host-parasite-parasitoid (three trophic) are considered to analyse the experimental observations. The effect of environmental fluctuation in the tritrophic system is also observed and optimum values of the inaccessible parameters involved in the system are estimated for purposes of biological control.
