Abstract:
      This study focuses on the dynamics of a modified Leslie-Gower predator-prey model where the intake rate of prey is by per capita predator according to Crowley-Martin functional response and prey is harvested through nonlinear harvesting strategy. Further the time-delay $(\tau)$ is imposed to utilize gestation period of predations. We investigate the permanence analysis of proposed system. The local stability of non-delayed model at all possible equilibrium points is studied. It is shown that the given model undergoes Hopf bifurcation around positive equilibrium point with respect to delay parameter $\tau$. Subsequently the stability of Hopf bifurcation and its direction are explored through normal and center manifold theories. The derived theoretical results are justified with the help of numerical simulations.
