  • Recent development of age-determination techniques for Florida manatees ( Trichechus manatus lati- rostris ) has permitted derivation of age-specific data on reproduction and survival of a sample of 1212 car- casses obtained throughout Florida from 1976-1991. Population viability analysis using these data projects a slightly negative growth rate ( 2 0.003) and an unacceptably low probability of persistence (0.44) over 1000 years. The main factors affecting population projections were adult… CONTINUE READING
