Reproductive Value and the Stochastic Demography of Age-Structured Populations

Steinar Engen, Russell Lande, Bernt‐Erik Sæther & Stephen Dobson
The dynamics of an age-structured population in a fluctuating environment is determined by the stochastic individual contributions from annual survival and fecundity to the total reproductive value of the population the next year. All parameters required to describe the population dynamics are simple properties of the distribution of these individual demographic contributions, which we call individual reproductive value. The asymptotic population growth rate in the average environment and the demographic and environmental variances are respectively...
