Summary: SARSIA
A population dynamical approach is useful in calcu-
lation of secondary production and for testing of hy-
potheses concerning effects of such factors as tempera-
ture and food availability on zooplankton growth. It is
also useful in descriptive life-history studies. In the
simplest form, population dynamics are described by
time series of population size. However, description of
the underlying vital rates is the only way to achieve
mechanistic understanding of population processes.
The average properties of a population may not be
good predictors of the properties of the survivors in
that population. Individual-based approaches that in-
corporate variability in parameters such as fecundity,
development times, growth rates and risk of mortality
may be necessary to successfully model and under-
