Table 1 Number of total and realistic growth rate estimates for different methods

From: An alternative kernel-based method for estimating copepod growth rates from multimodal biomass distributions in artificial cohort experiments

  Number of total growth rate estimates ( N) Number of realistic growth rate estimates ( n) Percentage of realistic growth rate estimates ( n/ N, %)
Method 1 196 168 86
Method 2 181 181 100
Method 3 189 189 100
  1. The methods are as follows: (1) average value, (2) mode value, and (3) multiple-peak consideration. Due to elimination of unreasonable values using the criteria for removal (see “Methods”) before the growth rate estimation, there were fewer than 196 values for the methods with the mode value (method 2) and multiple-peak consideration (method 3).
