6 that the short-term dynamics appears cyclic. 46). We might regard the short-term model as imbedded in the long-term one. 47) xn+l = B(yitb)), where y denotes pollution within a time unit and appropriate functions A, B, and g are to be defined. 47) is independent of n. 8 Salmo n Dynamic s 23 then t - t = 1 - f, - c . 47). Just suppose, for example, that our mischievous polluter achieves his goal by doubling the pollutio n level one tenth of a tim e unit after every reading, lettin g it decay at the natural rat e and then halving it again one tenth of a tim e unit before the next reading.

How good is thi s model ho w realistic are it s assumptions? That’ s an interesting and importan t question, but we’ll put it aside unti l Chapter 4. Meanwhile, if you are unfamilia r wit h diagrams lik e Fig. 3 (or Fig. 5. 5 χ A Secon d Simpl e Ecosyste m Thi s time, let x(t) and y{t) denote th e numbers of thousands (say) of in› dividuals, at tim e t, in populations of tw o species that compete for the same food supply (herbivores for grass, say). 17) still apply, of course, but the model wil l have t o be altered.
