Abstract: A mathematical model for three-species interactions in a food chain, with the assumption that the interacting species are mobile, has been constructed using a combination of Holling’s type III and the BD functional responses. Conditions for the onset of diffusive instability were determined. The results indicate the possibility of a stable coexistence of the three interacting species in form of stable oscillations under the reflecting boundary conditions. Habitat segregation also occurs under these conditions. However, under the absorbing boundary conditions, the species experience damped oscillations leading to their extinction. The effects of cross-diffusion of the intermediate and the toppredator were also examined.
