Embedded QuickTime Movie
Click on the image below to start the "movie". A control bar will appear below the graph; the various buttons will allow you to stop and start it.
Note the straight trajectory -- the point moves directly toward the stable equilibrium point. Note also, that the rate of movement is not constant (we are dealing with the logistic; its rate changes as a function of population size).
