Analyzing a generalized pest-natural enemy model with nonlinear impulsive control

Changtong Li, Sanyi Tang
2018 Open Mathematics  
Due to resource limitation, nonlinear impulsive control tactics related to integrated pest management have been proposed in a generalized pest-natural enemy model, which allows us to address the effects of nonlinear pulse control on the dynamics and successful pest control. The threshold conditions for the existence and global stability of pest-free periodic solution are provided by Floquet theorem and analytic methods. The existence of a nontrivial periodic solution is confirmed by showing the

In order to address the applications of generalized results and to reveal how the nonlinear impulses affect the successful pest control, as an example the model with Holling II functional response function is investigated carefully. The main results reveal that the pest free periodic solution and a stable interior positive periodic solution can coexist for a wide range of parameters, which indicates that the local stability does not imply the global stability of the pest free periodic solution when nonlinear impulsive control is considered, and consequently the resource limitation (i.e. nonlinear control) may result in difficulties for successful pest control.

Blue luminescent carbon quantum dots (CQDs) were prepared from cyanobacteria by a hydrothermal method. The PL quantum yields of the obtained CQDs was 5.30%. Cyanobacteria-based carbon quantum dots/polyvinyl alcohol/nanocellulose composite films were prepared, which could emit bright blue under UV light. FTIR characterization showed that the composite films had hydroxyl groups on the surface and no new groups were formed after combining the three materials. The photoluminescence (PL) spectra

Studies on the water resistance performance and light barrier properties of the composite films showed that they possessed higher water resistance properties and better UV/infrared light barrier properties. Therefore, we report the cyanobacteria-based carbon quantum dots/polyvinyl alcohol/nanocellulose composite films have the potential to be applied in flexible packaging materials, anti-fake materials, UV/infrared light barrier materials and so on.

Changtong Li, Xiaozhou Feng, Yuzhen Wang, Xiaomin Wang, Xinzhu Meng
2020 Complexity  
According to resource limitation, a more realistic pest management is that the impulsive control actions should be adjusted according to the densities of both pest and natural enemy in the field, which result in nonlinear impulsive control. Therefore, we have proposed a Beddington–DeAngelis interference predator-prey model concerning integrated pest management with both density-dependent pest and natural enemy population. We find that the pest-eradication periodic solution is globally stable if
more » ... the impulsive period is less than the critical value by Floquet theorem. The condition of permanent is established, and a stable positive periodic solution appears via a supercritical bifurcation by bifurcation theorem. Finally, in order to investigate the effects of those nonlinear control strategies on the successful pest control, the bifurcation diagrams showed that the model exists with very complex dynamics. Consequently, the resource limitation may result in pest outbreak in complex ways, which means that the pest control strategies should be carefully designed.

Complex dynamics and coexistence of period-doubling and period-halving bifurcations in an integrated pest management model with nonlinear impulsive control

Changtong Li, Sanyi Tang, Robert A. Cheke
2020 Advances in Difference Equations  
An expectation for optimal integrated pest management is that the instantaneous numbers of natural enemies released should depend on the densities of both pest and natural enemy in the field. For this, a generalised predator–prey model with nonlinear impulsive control tactics is proposed and its dynamics is investigated. The threshold conditions for the global stability of the pest-free periodic solution are obtained based on the Floquet theorem and analytic methods. Also, the sufficient

Additionally, the problem of finding a nontrivial periodic solution is confirmed by showing the existence of a nontrivial fixed point of the model's stroboscopic map determined by a time snapshot equal to the common impulsive period. In order to address the effects of nonlinear pulse control on the dynamics and success of pest control, a predator–prey model incorporating the Holling type II functional response function as an example is investigated. Finally, numerical simulations show that the proposed model has very complex dynamical behaviour, including period-doubling bifurcation, chaotic solutions, chaos crisis, period-halving bifurcations and periodic windows. Moreover, there exists an interesting phenomenon whereby period-doubling bifurcation and period-halving bifurcation always coexist when nonlinear impulsive controls are adopted, which makes the dynamical behaviour of the model more complicated, resulting in difficulties when designing successful pest control strategies.

COP9 Signalosome Subunit 3 Restricts Neuroinflammatory Responses During Cerebral Ischemia/Reperfusion Injury Through Stabilizing Suppressor of Cytokine Signaling 3 Protein

En Liang, Xiaojun Li, Wenjun Fu, Changtong Zhao, Baoying Yang, Zhonghua Yang
2021 Neuropsychiatric Disease and Treatment  
The suppressor of cytokine signaling 3 (SOCS3) is a specific negative regulator of signal transducer and activator of transcription 3 (STAT3) signaling, which is predominantly activated to induce neuroinflammatory response in microglia and functions essential roles during cerebral ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) injury. Constitutive photomorphogenesis 9 (COP9) signalosome (CSN) is a signaling platform controlling protein stability by remodeling of cullin-RING ubiquitin ligases, which is recently

Mice subjected to transient middle cerebral artery occlusion (MCAO) and reperfusion, and BV2 microglia cells treated with oxygen-glucose deprivation and reoxygenation (OGD/R) were used to mimic cerebral I/R injury. Western blot, qRTPCR, immunofluorescence, and co-Immunoprecipitation assays were performed to explore the regulatory mechanism of SOCS3 on neuroinflammation and the relationship of SOCS3 and COP9 signalosome during cerebral I/R injury. SOCS3 expression is significantly upregulated in microglia during OGD/R treatment, and overexpression of SOCS3 suppresses OGD/R-induced STAT3 activation and inflammatory factor expression. Furthermore, we find that COP9 signalosome subunit 3 (CSN3) interacts with SOCS3 protein to enhance its stability, thereby resulting in restricting OGD/R-induced STAT3 activation and inflammatory response. Moreover, we find that knockdown of CSN3 evidently accelerates STAT3 activation, and aggravates cerebral I/R injury in vivo. CSN3 restricts neuroinflammatory responses during cerebral I/R injury through stabilizing SOCS3 protein and indicates that CSN3 a potential therapeutic target for cerebral I/R injury.

To compare the clinical effects of local anesthesia (LA), general anesthesia (GA) and modified sensation-motion separation anesthesia (MA) in percutaneous endoscopic interlaminar discectomy (PEID) in the treatment of L5/S1 lumbar disc herniation (LDH) for the purpose of guiding junior surgeons. Eighty-four patients with L5/S1 LDH underwent PEID using three anesthesia methods. Patients in the LA (26), GA (29) and MA (29) groups received a follow-up examination retrospectively. The general

MA demonstrated obvious advantages over the other two methods with respect to operative duration and resulted in a better intraoperative experience than LA. The patients in the MA group required less time in bed postoperatively and shorter hospital stays than those in the GA group. The mean postoperative VAS, ODI and SF-36 scores were significantly better than the preoperative scores in all groups (P<0.05), but no significant differences in these scores were found among the three groups (P>0.05). Three cases (3/29) of nervous disorder occurred in the GA group. Two patients (one in the GA group (1/29) and one in the LA (1/26) group) underwent revision surgery, with a total recurrence rate of 2.4% (2/84). Due to its high safety and good tolerance by patients, MA is a suitable method for spinal surgeons who are inexperienced with PEID in the treatment of L5/S1 disc herniation.

After correction, the values of the valence band (VB) and conduction band (CB) of the samples were slightly changed as can be seen in Figure 3D below. Accordingly, the paragraph describing the MottÀSchottky results are corrected as follows: "The flat band potentials (E fb ) of the Sr 2 CoWO 6 (Co/W ¼ 1: 1, 3: 2, and 1: 4) samples were calculated to be ca. 1.1 V, 0.86 V, and 0.63 V vs. NHE at pH ¼ 7, respectively. Generally, it is known that the flat-band potentials of p-type semiconductors are ca. 0.3 V more positive than the VB. With this assumption, the VB positions of the samples with Co/W ¼ 1: 1, 3: 2, and 1: 4 could be estimated to be ca. 1.4 V, 1.16 V, and 0.93 V vs. NHE at pH ¼ 7, respectively. Since the (E g ) of the samples with Co/W of 1: 1, 3: 2, 1: 4 are ca. 1.7 eV, 1.45 eV, and 1.77 eV, and the definition of eV is a unit of energy gained by the charge of a single electron moved across an electric potential difference of one volt (1 eV ¼ 1e 1V, 1e %1.602 10 À19 C), the CB positions of them can be estimated to be ca. À0.3 V, À0.29 V, and À0.84 V vs NHE at pH ¼ 7, respectively." Accordingly, the abstract is corrected as follows: "The sample synthesized with precursor Co/W ratio of 1:4 has CB and VB located at ca. À0.84 and 0.93 eV versus the normal hydrogen electrode (NHE) at pH ¼ 7, respectively." Figure 1. D and E) SEM images of Sr 2 CoWO 6 (Co/W = 3:2 and 1:4, respectively).
