Parameters | ||
γ | Probability of early reproduction | [0,1] |
\(f_{2}\) | Per capita annual fecundity of early reproducing individuals at age 2 years old | |
\(f_{3}\) | Per capita annual fecundity of late reproducing individuals at age greater than or equal to 3 years old | |
\(\tilde{f}_{3}\) | Per capita annual fecundity of early reproducing individuals at greater than or equal to 3 years old | |
\(h_{i}\) | Per capita annual harvest proportion of individuals at age i (i = 1,2,3) | [0,1] |
c | Proportional reduction is measured by a cost | |
m | Constant that determines how strongly the survival of newborn is adversely affected by density in this age class | |
