Description We study predator–prey dynamics using the Rosenzweig–MacArthur-like model in which the Holling type II functional response has been replaced by a predator-dependent family which generalizes many of the commonly used descriptions of predator interference. We show that sufficiently strong predator interference may bring about stabilizing mechanism.
