We consider compartmental models for the mathematical description of many biological processes in which the material transport between compartments takes a nonnegligible length of time and each compartment produces or swallows materials. The proposed mathematical model is a neutral functional differential equation. We describe some of the global dynamics of the solutions to the linear model equation.
