Population dynamics model transition matrix of teasel

Share:

Description

Transition matrix of the population dynamics model of teasel (Dipsacus sylvestris), a European perennial weed, as discussed in Caswell (2001), and in Soetaert and Herman, (2009)

The life cycle of teasel can be described by six stages:

  • dormant seeds < 1yr (DS 1yr)

  • dormant seeds 1-2yr (DS 2yr)

  • small rosettes <2.5cm (R small)

  • medium rosettes 2.5-18.9 cm (R medium)

  • large rosettes >19 cm (R large)

  • flowering plants (F)

The matrix contains the transition probabilities from one compartment (column) to another (row).

Usage

1

Format

matrix with transition probabilities, where element ij denotes transition from compartment j to i

rownames and columnames are the component names
