Figure 3

Effects of vital parameters on the prevalence of two bacterial types. Parameters, unless varied, are set according to Table 1. Results are obtained at the steady state when (a) the conjugation rate λ is varied, (b) the probability of losing a plasmid p is varied, and (c) the mortality rate of bacteria d is varied. Prevalence of sensitive and resistant bacteria when both of the conjugation rate and the probability of losing a plasmid are varied is illustrated in (d) and (e), respectively (\(S(0) = R(0) = 10^{3}\))
