Comparative analysis of statistical tools to identify recruitment e environment relationships and forecast recruitment strength

  title={Comparative analysis of statistical tools to identify recruitment e environment relationships and forecast recruitment strength},
  author={Bernard A. Megrey and Yong-Woo Lee and Sharron Macklin},
Many of the factors affecting recruitment in marine populations are still poorly understood, complicating the prediction of strong year classes. Despite numerous attempts, the complexity of the problem often seems beyond the capabilities of traditional statistical analysis paradigms. This study examines the utility of four statistical procedures to identify relationships between recruitment and the environment. Because we can never really know the parameters or underlying relationships of… CONTINUE READING
