New Paper: Analyzing Viability for Multiple Populations
The ability to predict population viability is important to decision-makers because conservation funds are limited and more effective conservation efforts can be made if funds go to manage populations that are likely to recover. However, it is often impractical in reality to meet the high data requirements of PVA models. The MPVA model allows for predictions to be made about multiple populations with less data so decision makers can become more informed.
