Fig. 1. Dynamics of a three-species system (A) demonstrating a stationary attractor but characterized by strong oscillations of the two dominant species (Sred and Sblue). Even though the landscape at different times might be dominated by either Sred (B = landscape at 5880 generations) or Sblue (C = landscape at 19 350 generations), prediction-r2 spectra derived from analysis of landscapes at these two times, whether based on Sblue (D and E) or Sred (F and G), show similar estimates of the CLS at about 35 length units (areas identifying the CLS are shown as black horizontal bars). These analyses were based on abundances (densities) in sequences of five maps commencing at either generation 5870 or 19 340, with 10 time steps between consecutive maps.
