Abstract

Discrete mathematics are appropriate for projection models of birth pulse populations in seasonal environments. As originally formulated, the Leslie matrix and the life table survival and recruitment terms limit the utility of classical projection models. Relaxing the constraints on the time of census specified in the original formulations allows the recruitment rates to be more easily measured, although one must still follow cohorts to estimate the Leslie (1945; 1948a,b) matrix recruitment terms. The time of census and definition of recruits determines the value of the Leslie (Fx) and life table ($m_{x}$) recruitment terms.
