(a) Time series diagram of the system (4), where the blue and green continuous curves express the number of pines which is normal and susceptible and pine which is infected Bursaphelenchus xylophilus , respectively. And the red continuous curves expresses the number of Monochamus alternatus which carries Bursaphelenchus xylophilus Nickle. The pine wilt disease will not break out, where and . In this case, and . (b) Time series diagram of the system (4), where the blue and green continuous curve express the number of pines which is normal and susceptible and pine which is infected Bursaphelenchus xylophilus , respectively. And the red continuous curve express the number of Monochamus alternatus carry Bursaphelenchus xylophilus Nickle. the endemic equilibrium is globally asymptotically stable, where and . In this case, and . (c) Time series diagram of the system (4), where the blue and green continuous curves express the number of pines which is normal and susceptible and pine which is infected Bursaphelenchus xylophilus , respectively. And the red continuous curve expresses the number of Monochamus alternatus which carries Bursaphelenchus xylophilus Nickle. The disease-free equilibrium of the system (4) is globally asymptotically stable, where and . In this case, and .
