MATURNITY TABLE AND REPRODUCTIVE OUTPUT Fecundity is the number of female offspring produced by each female in a population. A maternity table combines survivorship (l X ) with age specific fecundity (m X ) . • Net reproductive output, ∑ (l X m X ), provides a way of projecting population changes each generation.

R O AND POPULATION DYNAMICS The following rules can be used to determine if a population is stationary, increasing or decreasing. The rules are: If R o = 1, then population is stationary. If R o > 1, then population is growing. If R o < 1, then population is declining.
DISTRIBUTION OF BIRTHS AND REPRODUCTIVE OUTPUT In populations that have similar age specific survivorship curves: • First births at early ages increase R o . • First births at late ages decrease R o . Delaying births in a growing population will slow the rate of growth.
