We consider subcritical Yamabe type equations depending on a real parameter. Local bifurcation from the trivial family of solutions happens when the parameter equals (a fixed multiple of) an eigenvalue of the Laplacian. We will focus in the case of the round sphere and discuss the local structure of the space of solutions at these bifurcation points, which is related to certain integrals involving the corresponding eigenfunctions.
