English term or phrase: repeller
Shifting to an alternative state. The solid white curves represent “attractors” for two different stable states, one coral dominated (top right) and one macroalgal dominated (bottom left). When the ecosystem state is near each attractor various feedback processes will tend to maintain stability, pulling it back towards the attractor. As conditions deteriorate for the coral dominated ecosystem from C1 towards C2, its state drifts towards the bifurcation point F2 and its resilience (difficulty with which disturbances can move it into an unstable or alternate stable state) decreases. The dashed blue curve between F2 and F1 is a ///“repeller” ///where the ecosystem state is unstable and may flip into either stable state.

Document dealing with reef restoration. There is a figure above this text but unfortunately I cannot enclose it.

C'est dans l'idée de "repoussant", "répulsif" mais ces deux mots ne semblent pas adaptés au contexte.

Thanks for your help.
