Integral projection models (IPMs) are population models structured by continuous traits such as body size, and have risen in popularity over the last decade. While most perturbation analyses developed for matrix models can be applied, additional considerations are necessary when working with IPMs.

Recent work has highlighted the importance of including individual heterogeneity into population models. This includes both traits that are fixed over the lifespan of an individual (e.g. morphology, genotype) and characteristics that change over time (e.g. age, body conditions). How influential such traits are for individual fitness (and population dynamics), may however depend on sex.

Stage structure is fundamental in quantitative population models, but there are different approaches to deal with stage duration and individual-/cohort variation therein.
