The Stages vectors plots, Survival and Growth rate curves Workflow provides an environment to perform several analyses on a series of stage-matrices:

- Survival values calculations per stage per year and its respective plot; - Growth rates (lambda) calculations per year and its respective plot; - Stage Vectors calculations and their respective plots.

This workflow requires an instance of Rserve on localhost

This workflow has been created by the Biodiversity Virtual e-Laboratory (BioVeL http://www.biovel.eu/) project. BioVeL is funded by the EU’s Seventh Framework Program, grant no. 283359.

This workflow uses the R pack ‘popbio’ (Stubben & Milligan 2007; Stubben, Milligan & Nantel 2011). References:
