Growth rate

  1. Nov 28, 2013 #1
    This is all the info i have ( i can also provide leslie matrix if required)

    how to calculate the percentage of an age class with with birth rate and survival rate, also how would you find growth rate.( Im just not sure if i use the eigenvalue or eigenvector, and the survival rate or birthrate)

    Age(years) [Birth rate] Survival Rate
    0-2 [ 0.00 ] 0.91
    2- 4 [ 0.02 ] 0.88
    4-6 [ 0.7 ] 0.85
    6-8 [ 1.53 ] 0.80
    8-10 [ 1.67 ] 0.74
    10-12 [ 1.65 ] 0.67
    12-14 [1.56] 0.59
    14-16 [ 1.45] 0.49
    16-18 [1.22] 0.38
    18-20 [0.91] 0.27
    20-22 [0.70] 0.17
    22-24 [0.22] 0.15
    24-26 [0.00] 0.00

    the eigenvalue is 1.33 and the eigenvector is :
    0.747
    0.510
    0.337
    0.215
    0.129
    0.072
    0.036
    0.016
    0.06
    0.02
    0.00
    0.00
    0.00
