Phase portrait of a two environmental variable system where is in the very large limit, essential range = 100, niche function width = 5. Stable points, are indicated by circles. The basins of attraction which lead to these points are indicated by the different coloured enclosing regions, while initial conditions which would leave the essential range of are coloured white. Environmental variables do not necessarily move immediately towards stable points. Credit: James G. Dyke, Iain S. Weaver. The Emergence of Environmental Homeostasis in Complex Ecosystems.
