Proportional sensitivity of stochastic population growth rate to vital rates.

Results of stochastic elasticity analysis: (a) elasticity of stochastic population growth rate (λs) to changes in mean values of vital rates, (b) elasticity of λs to changes in variance of vital rates, and (c) overall stochastic elasticities. Vital rates are: Pj = juvenile survival, Pa = adult survival, LS = litter size, BPj = breeding probability (i.e., probability of successful reproduction) for yearlings, and BPa = breeding probability for adults.
