A matrix model describes the annual dynamics of a commercial (harvested by plucking) Gelidium sesquipedale population off Cape Espichel, Portugal. Vital rates were measured from a frond population divided into size classes; annual transition probabilities among them were calculated. Transition probabilities under harvest by cutting are derived by assuming… CONTINUE READING
