Sampling error in demographic estimates Some of the among-year variance in observed demography will be due to sampling error Need to correct for this First cut: similar approach as for count- based PVA

Unformatted text preview: transitions is multinomial Treat as a sequence of binomial processes Stochastic simulations with demographic stochasticity For each individual, draw random numbers to determine fate, with parameter given by the corresponding mean vital rate Survival: binomial Growth: sequence of binomials Fecundity: Poisson? Adding environmental stochasticity Each year, the mean vital rate is drawn at random Binomial variables: Use beta distribution Fertility: lacking other info, use log-normal Introducing correlations is not trivial, but can be done...
