Appendix B. Sensitivity analysis.
TABLE B1. Parameter values for which sensitivity analyses were conducted. Sensitivity analyses were conducted on all parameters separately; individual parameters were allowed to vary systematically, with the remaining parameters held constant.
Parameter | Range for sensitivity analysis |
Expectation of per-capita fecundity (E[ln(f)]) |
[-0.1, -0.001, 0.01, 0.1] |
Variance in per-capita fecundity (var[ln(f)]) |
[1, 2.2, 3, 4] |
Range parameter of environmental covariance function (Φ) |
Φ_{exp} = 5√3/6 - 10√3/3 Φ_{Gau} = 2.5 - 10 |
