Population ecology of a colonizing species: The pelagic tunicate Thalia democratica

Abstract

The salp Thalia democratica has one of the highest rates of population increase of any multicellular animal. Age distribution and survivorship were calculated for a natural population at sea, using serial size distributions and known age-length relationship. Methods were developed to estimate infinitesimal rate of population increase r, even though the… (More)
