Abstract

An old-field alder thicket showed slow population decline over all 3 yr of study. The other population, in an undisturbed natural swamp, showed decline in each year but overall increase when data from all 3 yr were combined. Transition matrix models are here best viewed not as projections of long-term population behaviour, but as indicators of current demographic trends.-from Authors
