American alligator growth simulation and integrated population model

November 8, 2022

The software consists of three scripts to be run in the R statistical program: 1) Alligator growth simulation; 2) alligator integrated population model file; and 3) data visualization script. Script #1 produces growth transition probabilities that are used in script #2. The second script uses the outputs from #1 as well as other data files to run an integrated population model. The last script (#3) uses outputs from the model file (script #2) to produce figures that appear in the manuscript.
