Appendix H. Figures showing sensitivity tests for the spatially explicit model.

FIG. H1. Mean crawler abundance at steady state, M_{i}*, vs. local patch density for aerial travel distances, α, of 1 – 20 m. Each plot represents the mean of 5 simulations run for 200 generations. (The α = 5 m plot is shown in Fig. 7D for 15 runs and is not pictured here.) |

FIG. H2. Mean crawler abundance at steady state, M_{i}*, vs. local patch density, for varying levels of ground travel, γ, and maximum dispersal distance, τ_{max}. Each plot represents the mean of 5 simulations run for 200 generations. |

FIG. H3. Mean crawler abundance at steady state, M_{i}*, vs. local patch density, for varying levels of neonate emigration, , and dispersal distance, τ (= α + γ), where α = 5 and τ_{ max}/ τ = 4. Each plot represents the mean of 5 simulations run for 200 generations. |

FIG. H4. Effect of density-dependent neonate emigration, , on mean crawler abundance at steady state. (A) Hypothetical levels of density-dependent neonate emigration (low or high, positive or negative). (B) Corresponding mean crawler abundance, M_{i}*, vs. local patch density. Each plot represents 1 simulation run for 200 generations. |
