Observational and Experimental Methods for the Estimation of Natality, Mortality and Dispersal

  • T. R. E. Southwood


Values for the ‘pathways’ through which population size changes may also be obtained by the subtraction or integration of census figures in a budget: methods of calculation and of analysis of budgets are discussed in the next chapter, but there is no hard and fast distinction between the contents of the two chapters. As is indicated below, in the appropriate sections, the terms ‘natality’ and ‘dispersal’ are used in their widest sense.
