From dz/dt = [theta] in (16), two horizontal isoclines are determined near [theta] = 0,[pi]: one is [V.sub.1] := {v [member of] [R.sub.+] : z = 0} and the other is [V.sub.2] := {v [member of] [R.sub.-] : z = 0}.
The figure shows the loci and depicts the nonnegative orthant where the isoclines in equations and compose four isosectors labeled (i) - (iv).
In this section we discuss the dynamic of the Lotka-Volterra model by analyzing the position of the two isoclines and the global stability of the system.
Another important observation is that symmetry breaking of the curves having equal deflections (isoclines) occurs already for the quasiperiodic vibrations, and the vibrations associated with the second bifurcation (p = 2.1) exhibit only two axes of symmetry.
For numerical simulation, the parameters are chosen to give the behaviour of the isoclines for the species and the resource.
Furthermore, we have the positive equilibrium [E.sub.+] = ([x.sup.*], [y.sup.*]), corresponding to coexistence of susceptible strain and resistant strain, that is given by intersections of the zero growth isoclines:
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.q] = 0 isocline.
The correspondings to this period, isoclines are shown in the figure 3.
1 and 2, the isoclines for [u.sub.1] and [u.sub.2], which correspond to those sets of ([u.sub.1],[u.sub.2]) satisfying [delta][u.sub.1]/[delta]t = [delta][u.sub.2]/[delta]t = 0 are given, respectively, by
No solution exists for n [greater than or equal to] 5, because the corresponding isoclines never meet [ILLUSTRATION FOR FIGURES 2A,B OMITTED].
