In this paper we study a semi-Kolmogorov type of population model, arising from a predator-prey system with indirect effects. In particular we are interested in investigating the population dynamics when the indirect effects are time dependent and periodic. We first prove the existence of a global pullback attractor. We then estimate the fractal dimension of the attractor, which is done for a subclass by using Leonov's theorem and constructing a proper Lyapunov function. To have more insights about the dynamical behavior of the system we also study the coexistence of the three species. Numerical examples are provided to illustrate all the theoretical results.
