Key Event Relationship Description
If young of year survival is reduced, ultimately the population trajectory will decrease.
Evidence Supporting this KER
Survival rate is an obvious determinant of population size and is therefore included in population modeling (e.g., Miller et al., 2020).
It is widely accepted that if young of year survival is reduced, the population trajectory will eventually decrease.
