Life-history strategies are analysed using a matrix population model. Within this framework an organism can be characterized at a particular time by a suitable state variable such as age or size, or both. A life-history strategy specifies the action an organism takes in each state. Given a life-history strategy one can find the reproductive value of the various states under this strategy. One can then ask whether an organism following the strategy chooses actions to maximize the reproductive… CONTINUE READING
