Problem 12

Suppose that L = _ 0.5 2.0 0.1 0 _ is the Leslie matrix of a population with two age classes. (a) If you were to manage this population, would you need to be concerned about its long-term survival? (b) Suppose that you can improve either the fecundity or the survival of the zero-year-olds, but due to physiological and environmental constraints, the fecundity of zero-year-olds will not exceed 1.5 and the survival of zero-year-olds will not exceed 0.4. Investigate how the growth rate of the population is affected by changing either the survival or the fecundity of zero-year-olds, or both.What would be the maximum achievable growth rate? (c) In real situations, what other factors might you need to consider when you decide on management strategies?
