      In this paper, we investigate the spatiotemporal dynamics of a ratio-dependent predator-prey model with cross diffusion incorporating proportion of prey refuge. First we get the critical lines of Hopf and Turing bifurcations in a spatial domain by using mathematical theory. More specifically, the exact Turing region is given in a two parameter space. Also we perform a series of numerical simulations. The obtained results reveal that this system has rich dynamics, such as spotted, stripe and labyrinth patterns which show that it is useful to use the predator-prey model to reveal the spatial dynamics in the real world.
