Construction and Analysis of Matrix Population Models

Construct and analyze projection matrix models from a demography study of marked individuals classified by age or stage. The package covers methods described in Matrix Population Models by Caswell (2001) and Quantitative Conservation Biology by Morris and Doak (2002).

popbio is an R package for modeling population growth rates using age- or stage-classified matrix models. The package consists mainly of methods described in Hal Caswell's Matrix Population Models (2001) and Morris and Doak's Quantitative Conservation Biology (2002). The R code was first submitted to CRAN in 2007.
