Age-structured population growth rates in constant and variable environments: a near equilibrium approach

Dewi, Sonya; Chesson, Peter

Description

General measures summarizing the shapes of mortality and fecundity schedules are proposed. These measures are derived from moments of probability distributions related to mortality and fecundity schedules. Like moments, these measures form infinite sequences, but the first terms of these sequences are of particular value in approximating the long-term growth rate of an age- structured population that is growing slowly. Higher order terms are needed for approximating faster growing populations....[Show more]
