Abstract

Tractable formulations are presented for neighborhood models of annual plant population dynamic processes. These models are constructed from submodels, termed predictors, of individual plants. Fecundity and survivorship predictors give the fecundity and survivorship of an individual as a function of local population density. Dispersal predictors predict the dispersal pattern of a plant's maternal progeny and the survivorship of plants from seed to seedlings. -from Authors
