The effect of diffusion on the blowup of solutions of the semilinear parabolic system was studied using a mutualistic model. The semilinear parabolic system includes a Laplace operator, a bounded domain with a smooth boundary, a closure function, an outward unit normal vector on the closure function, and a function for the maximal existence time of the solution. Theorems proved have considered both fast and slow diffusion rates.
