10 15 Years 20 25 Now you do it Consider a population with 4 age cohorts (0-3) and age-specific survival rates of 0.50, 0.65, 0.85, and 0.40, respectively. Assume that the age 0 cohort consists of immature (non-breeding) individuals

and that reproductive rates for the other 3 cohorts are age specific: 0.1, 20, and 150. Using a population-projection matrix, project and graph each cohort in the population for 10 years starting with an initial age-specific population size of 1000, 500, 200, and 85 for age cohorts 0-3, respectively. 0 1 2 3
