Traditional population models are often limited to the female half of the population, but acknowledgement of the importance of males is spreading. There are fundamental differences between male and female demographies, and these differences can strongly affect population dynamics and provide important insights into the evolution of life histories.

In this upcoming session, we will be discussing a recent paper dealing with sex-specific demography and its abilities to inform life history theory:

Usually, we model demographic rates and use them to make inferences about population-level processes. The idea of doing the reverse - using population time-series to make conclusions about demographic rates - is not new, but challenging and bound by many assumptions.

In this session, we will discuss a very recent paper on reverse parameter estimation using IPM methodology, to see what new developments have been made for this idea.
