In this paper, we investigate the rich dynamics of a diffusive Holling type-Ⅱ predator-prey model with density-dependent death rate for the predator under homogeneous Neumann boundary condition. The value of this study lies in two-aspects. Mathematically, we show the stability of the constant positive steady state solution, the existence and nonexistence, the local and global structure of nonconstant positive steady state solutions. And biologically, we find that Turing instability is induced by the density-dependent death rate, and both the general stationary pattern and Turing pattern can be observed as a result of diffusion.
