Abstract: In this paper strongly monotone dynamical systems are investigated. It is proved that the set of points with precompact orbits which converge to a not unstable equilibrium but whose trajectories are not eventually strongly monotone is nowhere dense. This improves on and extends a recent result by P. Poláčik [13].
