Homework 2. Due Tuesday Jan 29.
  1. 1) There are several ways to describe the dynamics of a population with age and or stage structure.  In class we covered discrete time, discrete age and continuous time, continuous age.  Discuss the relative merits of these two approaches, and the implicit biological assumptions we have made in each one.
  2. 2)  These two models ignore density dependence.  Discuss what the value (or lack thereof) is of an approach which ignores density dependence.
