Resample a projection matrix using a multinomial distribution for transitions and a log normal distribution for fertilities

1 |

`A` |
a projection matrix |

`n` |
either a stage vector with the number of transitions to sample in each column or a single value that is applied to all columns |

`fvar` |
either a vector of different fertility variances or a single variance of fertility (default 1.5) that is applied to all rates |

`...` |
additional items are passed to |

The projection matrix A is first split into separate transition and
fertility matrices. Dead fates are added to the transtion matrix and
the columns are then sampled from a `Multinomial`

distribution based on the
size in each corresponding stage class in `n`

.

The fertility rates are sample from a Log Normal distribution using
the `lnorms`

function. The variance can be a single
value which is applied to all rates, or vector of different
values to apply to each rate. In this case, the values are recycled
to match the number of non-zero fertilities.

## NOTE fertilities are in first two rows, so use r=1:2 for splitting this matrix
## resample transitions 100 times each
resample(A, 100, r=1:2)
## set higher fvar in stage 4 and 6
##because there are two fertilities per stage (8 total), need to repeat values
resample(A,1000, fvar=c(1.5, 1.5, 3, 3), r=1:2)
## OR resample based on number of plants surveyed
# data from table 6.4 and box 7.3)
n<-c(4264,3, 30, 16, 24,5)
## create a list with 1000 resampled matrices
x<-lapply(1:1000, function(x) resample(A,n, r=1:2))
mean(x)
## use var2 to check variances, especially if using differnt fvar values
var2(x)
## growth rates
y<-sapply(x, lambda)
quantile( y, c(0.025, .975) )
hist(y, br=30, col="palegreen", xlab="Lambda", main="1985 Hudsonia growth rates")
abline(v=quantile(y, c(0.025, .975)), lty=3)
## double the sample size (and quadruple seedlings) and you may be able to detect a decline
n<-n*2
n[2]<-n[2]*2
x<-lapply(1:1000, function(x) resample(A, n*2, r=1:2))
