oligochaetes in the patch. These starting densities represented a single point in
the state space. Next, they measured the increase and decrease of each
population in the patch after three days. These changes revealed the vector of
Thus, the oligochaetes do not competitively exclude Hobsonia because the

“The competitors of a given genus or other higher taxon are from time to time
lined up ...
