## What are isoclines in ecology?

isocline A line joining points on a graph at which combinations of resource levels or population densities produce a similar rate of population growth for a particular species. A Dictionary of Ecology.

**What is the method of isoclines?**

Isoclines are often used as a graphical method of solving ordinary differential equations. In an equation of the form y’ = f(x, y), the isoclines are lines in the (x, y) plane obtained by setting f(x, y) equal to a constant.

### What is an isocline map?

isoclinenoun. A line on a map linking places with the same magnetic dip.

**What is a pure time differential equation?**

Definition: Pure-Time Differential Equation A pure-time differential equation is a differential equation where the derivative of a function is given as an explicit function of the independent variable (ie. the function itself is only present as a derivative), generally assumed to be time.

#### What is a zero growth isocline?

The zero-growth isocline describes expected equilibrium population sizes of one species if abundance of the second species is held constant, and vice versa.

**How do you find the zero Isoclines?**

Thus, the zero-growth isocline for species 1 is a straight line (y = a + bx) with the y intercept = K1/a21 and slope (b) = 1/a21 (assuming N2 is plotted on the y-axis).

## What is an isocline?

Generally, an isocline will itself have the shape of a curve or the union of a small number of curves. Isoclines are often used as a graphical method of solving ordinary differential equations.

**How do you find the isocline of an equation?**

Isocline. In an equation of the form y’ = f ( x, y ), the isoclines are lines in the ( x, y) plane obtained by setting f ( x, y) equal to a constant. This gives a series of lines (for different constants) along which the solution curves have the same gradient. By calculating this gradient for each isocline, the slope field can be visualised;

### What are isolines on a map?

Isolines, also referred to as contour lines, can be used to represent elevation on a map by connecting points of equal elevation, for instance.

**What is an anticline in geology?**

Geology An anticline or syncline so tightly folded that the rock beds of the two sides are nearly parallel. American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language, Fifth Edition.
