 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.
