Of concern is the study of the eigenstructure of some classes of positive linear operators satisfying particular conditions. As a consequence, some results concerning the asymptotic behaviour as \(t\to +\infty\) of particular strongly continuous semigroups \((T(t))_{t\geq 0}\) expressed in terms of iterates of the operators under consideration are obtained as well. All the analysis carried out herein turns out to be quite general and includes some applications to concrete cases of interest, related to the classical Beta, Stancu and Bernstein operators.
