The Simulate stochastic growth from a sequence of matrices Workflow provides an environment to simulate stochastic growth by projection using whole matrix selection techniques in an independently and identically distributed (iid) environment from a set of 2 or more projection matrices. This workflow is based on the popbio package (script: stoch.projection - Simulate stochastic growth from a sequence of matrices, Stubben, Milligan and Nantel, 2013) based on the The MATLAB code in Box 7.3 (Mo...

The Cohen’s cumulative distance Workflow provides an environment to calculate the Cohen’s cumulative distance. The Cohen’s cumulative distance measures the difference between observed and expected vectors along the matrix path that the population would take to reach the expected population vector. It is a function of both the observed stage distribution (n0) and the structure of the matrix (A) (Williams et al 2011). Cohen’s cumulative distance will not work for reducible matrices or imprimiti...

The Keyfit delta Workflow provides an environment to calculate the Keyfit delta value. Keyfitz’s delta is a measure of the distance between any two probability vectors (Keyfitz 1968). In this case is a measure of the distance between n (Observed Stage Distribution) and w (Stable Stage Distribution). The maximum value is 1 and the minimum value is 0 (when the vectors are identical). ============================================================ This workflow has been created by the Biodiversit...

The Damping ratio Workflow provides an environment to calculate the damping ratio of several matrices and plot them. The damping ratio can be considered as a measure of the intrinsic resilience of the population, describing how quickly transient dynamics decay following disturbance or perturbation regardless of population structure, the larger the p, the quicker the population converges. ============================================================= This workflow requires an instance of Rse...

Project

The Parametric Bootstrap or Resample a projection matrix Workflow provides an environment to resample a projection matrix using a multinomial distribution for transitions and a log normal distribution for fertilities (Stubben, Milligan, and Nantel. 2011). The resample is based on number of plants surveyed. The projection matrix A is first split into separate transition and fertility matrices. Dead fates are added to the transition matrix and the columns are then sampled from a Multinomial dis...

Project

This workflow calculates bootstrap distributions of population growth rates (?), stage vectors, and projection matrix elements by randomly sampling with replacement from a stage-fate data frame of observed transitions. The goal of a demographic analysis is very often to estimate lambda, because lambda is estimated from imperfect data, such estimation are uncertain. Therefore, when the results have policy implications it is important to quantify that uncertainty. Confidence interval is one of ...

Project

This workflow produces plots of the short-term dynamics and convergence to stable stage distribution using stage vector projections. ============================================================ This workflow has been created by the Biodiversity Virtual e-Laboratory (BioVeL http://www.biovel.eu/) project. BioVeL is funded by the EU’s Seventh Framework Program, grant no. 283359. This workflow was created based on Package ‘popbio’ in R. Stubben, C & B. Milligan. 2007. Estimating and Anal...

Project

The age specific analysis workflow gives the basic information on age-specific survival, this includes the mean, variance and coefficient of variation (cv) of the time spent in each stage class and the mean and variance of the time to death. Fundamental matrix (N): is the mean of the time spent in each stage class. Variance (var): is the variance in the amount of time spent in each stage class. Coefficient of variation (cv): is the coefficient of variation of the time spent in each class...
