In this paper, we study a diffusive plant-herbivore system with homogeneous and nonhomogeneous Dirichlet boundary conditions.Stability of spatially homogeneous steady states is established. We also derive conditions ensuring the occurrence of Hopfbifurcation and steady state bifurcation. Interesting transient spatio-temporal behaviors including oscillations in one or both of space and time are observed through numerical simulations.
