## Age Structured Populations

09/28/2011 by jgluvna

In some populations there is no distinct breeding season, so reproduction takes place continually, which can make it problematic to keep track of all the new births. Create a model/equation that would enable you to take a census of the number of newborns over time of a continuously breeding population of your choice. Assume that juveniles and old females cannot reproduce. How would this change your model/equation?

### Calculus techniques used:

- Integration

### Theory:

- Age structured populations (Neuhauser, Claudia.
