This paper presents some concepts and methodology essential for the analysis of population dynamics of univoltine species. Simple stochastic difference equations, comprised of endogenous and exogenous components, are introduced to provide a basic structure for density—dependent population processes. The endogenous component of a population process is modelled as a function of density in the past p generations, including the most recent. The exogenous component of the process consists of all… Expand
