Summary: We study an autonomous $$N$$th order Lotka-Volterra system of differential equations. It is shown that if the coefficients satisfy certain inequalities, then given a solution with positive initial values, the $$N$$th component of such a solution approaches zero while the rest approach a certain solution of a smaller system.
For the entire collection see [Zbl 0836.00032].
