The exact bifurcation diagram with both the stable (solid line) and unstable (dashed line) branches are shown in each plot. Transient data were collected at two locations (indicated by labels X) in the pre-bifurcation regime. The predicted post-bifurcation regime is shown by the standard deviation error bars for 100 separate noisy realizations for macrophyte cover with (a) 10% noise, (b) 20% noise, and (c) 30% noise, and vertical light attenuation with (d) 10% noise, (e) 20% noise, (f) 30% noise.
