The figure shows the loci and depicts the nonnegative orthant where the isoclines in equations and compose four isosectors labeled (i) - (iv).
Mean spring salinities at each deployment site showed the same relative longitudinal gradient during all years, but variations in freshwater inflow conditions caused locations of salinity isoclines to shift in both up- and downstream directions (Table 3).
Equations (20) to (22) can be solved to yield two k = 0 isoclines and a single [dot.
The correspondings to this period, isoclines are shown in the figure 3.
For fixed x, the isoclines are linear; x determines where the isoclines intersect the [u.
No solution exists for n [greater than or equal to] 5, because the corresponding isoclines never meet [ILLUSTRATION FOR FIGURES 2A,B OMITTED].
We have not attempted a formal local-stability analysis of the discrete-grazer model, but the plots of producer productivity and producer isoclines in Fig.
The slopes of the isoclines are given in the last equation of the proof.
The null isoclines give the threshold of zero growth for each of the two species, and their intersection specifies the equilibrium point.
1], The zero growth isocline is augmented by isoclines [I.
