What is Lambda in a Leslie Matrix?
Lambda is the long term population growth indicator.
What is a Leslie Matrix?
A Leslie Matrix is a square matrix used to determine population growth over time and the stable age distribution for that population. In order to calculate a Leslie Matrix, survival rate and fecundity for each age class needs to be input into the matrix. In addition, the number of individuals in each age class/stage class must also be input into the matrix.
What are the three possible out comes for Lambda and what is their significance?
Lambda=1 No Growth
Lambda>1 Exponential Growth
Lambda<1 Exponential Decrease
What is the file drawer problem?
For example, studies failing
to find a significant effect of treatment are less likely
to be published, a problem that is sometimes called
the ‘file-drawer problem’ (Rosenthal 1991; Arnqvist &
Wooster 1995). As a consequence, a summary of only
published results would be expected to show more of an
effect than really exists (Palmer 1999, 2000).
What is meta analysis?
Meta-analysis is simply statistical modelling: the use of
probability models to summarize data with estimates
of parameters from the summarizing model.
