  • Appropriate inference of population status for endangered species is extremely important. Using a single model for estimating population growth rates is typically inadequate for assessing endangered species because inferences based on only one ''best'' model ignore model uncertainty. In this study, the endangered dromedary pearlymussel (Dromus dro- mas) in the Clinch and Powell rivers of eastern Tennessee, USA, was used as an example to demonstrate the importance of multiple models, with… CONTINUE READING
