Elasticity and Sensitivity of the Vital rates documentation
<p>This documentation (tutorial to run the workflow) explains how to run a workflow that belongs to the pack with same name.</p><p>This workflow calculates the Elasticity and Sensitivity of population growth rate with respect to various vital rates. The goal in both cases is to determine which vital rate(s) has/have the most influence on population growth rate (λ).</p><p><br />Elasticity and Sensitivity: Sensitivity and elasticity analyses are prospective analyses.</p><ul><li><p>The sensitivity matrix: The sensitivity describes the effect on λ of changes in vital rates of the matrix. The derivative tells what would happened to λ if aij was to change, not whether, or in what direction, or how much, aij actually change (Caswell 2001).</p></li><li><p>The Elasticity matrix: The elasticities of λ with respect to the vital rate are often interpreted as the “relative contributions” of each of the vital rates to λ (de Kroon et al 1986). For further information see: de Kroon, et al., 1986. and Caswell 2001.</p></li></ul>
