Extended Data Fig. 4: Simulation results for a system of facultative mutualism between two classes of competitors.

From: Predicting coexistence in experimental ecological communities

Extended Data Fig. 4

Plants are denoted by p, and animals are denoted by a. Despite the non-linear functional response, the method predicts the location of the endpoints (all characterized by equilibrium dynamics) almost perfectly. The method also correctly predicts the lack of coexistence between the two plants (panel p1-p2).
