When change in size ≠ growth: using apparent growth to estimate actual growth


Exact measures of growth in the wild can be important in bioenergetics models, for example when they try to deduce diet from growth and temperature conditions. Growth in the wild is a tricky thing, and can be confounded with size-selective mortality. I've built on a model originally explored by Steven Munch (2003), investigating its behavior and improving its accuracy.
