Figure 4.16. The boundary curve implied by Eq. (4.41), obtained by the numerical solution of Eq. (4.42). For values of maximum egg complement and handling time that fall below the curve, the parasitoid is egg-limited, in the sense that her lifetime fitness would be incremented more by an increase in egg complement than by a decrease in handling time. For values above the curve, the parasitoid is time-limited, in the sense that lifetime fitness would be incremented more by a decrease in handling time than by an increase in maximum egg complement.
