Notice that there are no vertical isoclines near [theta] = 0 in (16).
A point originating in (iii) or (iv) oscillates between (iii) and (iv) until convergence at the isocline. Corruption continues to increase regardless of the oversight effort if it originates in isosector (iii) or (iv).
In int [R.sup.2.sub.+], the zero growth isoclines of [U.sub.1] and [U.sub.2] are as follows:
It has been illustrated that in all studied cases the symmetry breaking of the curves of equal deflections (isoclines) occurs while transiting into a chaotic regime.
Herein, the zero net growth isoclines represent equilibrium boundaries of individual species based on their requirements in resource availability.
Apparently, the isoclines [l.sub.1] and [l.sub.2] pass through the points [E.sub.1], (0, [y.sub.1]) and ([x.sub.2], 0), [E.sub.2], respectively.
This path must always be the right of k*, because from (16) m'([k.sub.1]) = [rho] + [omega], whereas from (22) the [dot.q] = 0 isocline is always defined at m'(k*) = [rho] + [omega] + [theta].
For fixed x, the isoclines are linear; x determines where the isoclines intersect the [u.sub.2] axis: as x increases, isodine 1 moves down while isocline 2 moves up (Fig.
3, and it is necessary to consider zero isoclines. The previous assumption of grazer emigration being independent of producer biomass yields a grazer isocline parallel to the producer axis.
The slopes of the isoclines are given in the last equation of the proof.
Noting that many studies about system (1) can be found [1-7], based on these studies, we let [L.sub.1] and [L.sub.2] be two isoclines of system (1):
