Abstract : In this paper, the analysis of a schistosomiasis infection model that involves human and intermediate snail hosts as well as an additional mammalian host and a competitor snail species is studied by constructing Lyapunov functions and using a Krasnoselkii sublinearity trick. We derive the basic reproduction number R0 for the deterministic model, and establish that the global dynamics are completely determined by the values of R0. We obtain the global stability of the disease-free equilibrium E0 when R0 ≤ 1 and we prove the existence and local stability of the endemic equilibrium E∗ when R0 > 1.
