AN ANALYSIS OF EURASIAN BADGER (MELES MELES) POPULATION DYNAMICS: IMPLICATIONS FOR REGULATORY MECHANISMS

Abstract:

Based on 15 years of observations of a badger (Meles meles) population at Wytham Woods in the central United Kingdom, we investigated which parameters governed demographic changes, using data recording the life histories of 868 individuals. We modeled the population in terms of a stage-classified matrix, giving an exponential population growth rate of r 0.063 (λ 1.065). Population elasticity values, derived from this matrix, produced a relative order of importance of regulatory parameters gov...
