# Heteroclinic foliation, global oscillations for the Nicholson-Bailey model and delay of stability loss

• This paper is concerned with the classical Nicholson-Bailey model [15] defined by $f_\lambda(x,y)=(y(1-e^{-x}), \lambda y e^{-x})$. We show that for $\lambda=1$ a heteroclinic foliation exists and for $\lambda>1$ global strict oscillations take place. The important phenomenon of delay of stability loss is established for a general class of discrete dynamical systems, and it is applied to the study of nonexistence of periodic orbits for the Nicholson-Bailey model.
