  1. Numbers indicate mean ± SE. Tukey HSD comparison of parameter values among the three settings. Numbers connected with different (same) letters indicate significant (non-significant) differences among the three settings
  2. R0 is the mean net replacement rate (number of offspring per female per generation)
  3. §r is intrinsic per capita growth rate (number of offspring per female per day)
