Unformatted text preview: T the threshold for the di±erential equation. Whenever the initial position y is less than this threshold the solution y ( t ) → 0. Figure 1.

Say that we have a population of size P = P ( t ) at time t . We keep track of two properties: • There is an environmental carrying capacity K . That is, if P > K then the population will decrease in size because the population has exceeded its resources. 1...
