In this paper we refine in a substantial way part of the materials of the celebrated paper of Belgacem and Cosner [3] by considering a rather general class of degenerate diffusive logistic equations in the presence of advection. Rather paradoxically, a large advection can provoke the stabilization to an steady state of a former explosive solution. Similarly, even with a severe taxis down the environmental gradient the species can be permanent.
