Appendix D. Age-dependent life table of Persian fallow deer.

Survival rate (SR) and Reproductive rate (RR) of females in the breeding core, as was estimated by Saltz (1998) for the reintroduced females; and as was incorporated into the model (based on Saltz (1998) with adjustments based on the empirical data). RR is the probability to produce a female fawn.
