This paper presents the role of the nonlinear observer to estimate the state variable for the continous lotka-volterra system. A theoretical frame is provided in order to show the convergence characteristics of the proposed observer under some satisfied assumptions. The proposed methodology is applied to a class of Lotka-Volterra systems with three species. Numerical simulations are shown to validate and demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed high gain observer.
