Very few demographic surveys in developing countries have gathered information on household incomes or consumption expenditures. Researchers interested in living standards therefore have had little alternative but to rely on simple proxy indicators. The properties of these proxies have not been analyzed systematically. We ask what hypotheses can be tested(More)
Complex simulations and numerical experiments typically rely on a number of parameters and have an associated score function, e.g. with the goal of maximizing accuracy or minimizing computation time. However, the influence of each individual parameter is often poorly understood a priori and the joint parameter space can be difficult to explore, visualize(More)
In order to enhance protection and conservation strategies for endangered green turtles (Chelonia mydas), the identification of neritic habitats where this species aggregates is mandatory. Herein, we present new information about the population parameters and residence time of two neritic aggregations from 2010 to 2013; one in an upwelling dominated site(More)
