Description

Projection matrices for a tropical understory herb (Calathea ovandensis) for plots 1-4 and years 1982-1985 and the pooled matrix

Usage

1

Format

A list of 17 matrices ordered by plot then year, with the pooled matrix last.

Details

A projection matrix constructed using a post-breeding census with 8 size classes: seed, seedling, juvenile, pre-reproductive, and 4 reproductive classes divided by leaf area.

Source

Table 7 in Horvitz and Schemske (1995). The pooled matrix is from Table 8.

## MEAN matrix (exclude pooled matrix)
