However, very few individuals survive for a year or longer. Additionally, most individuals are born in summer (although under favourable conditions -low population densities of voles and predators - voles may breed in winter). Thus, because almost all individuals in a population are replaced on a yearly scale, and because there is a reproductive pulse once a year, L = 1 year appears to be a good choice. Aphids present the greatest difficulty, because they can have multiple generations during one year.

The resulting quantity, analogous to Am' is then given by 22 Stephen P. 8b) Here Pm(elX) is the conditional density of X(t + m) given X(t)=X, and Pm is the conditional density's vector of derivatives with respect to X. 8) is in variance under any smooth, invertible transformation of the data, which is not true of local Lyapunov exponents. 2 DIVERGENCE OF THE CONDITIONAL MEAN A measure closer to the LLE is the sensitivity of the conditional mean to perturbations. 10) where A(X) is the conditional mean of X(m) given X(O)=x and DG m is its Jacobian matrix.

Clearly the correspondence between mechanisms and patterns is not one-to-one. Thus, predation is not the only mechanism that could produce delayed density dependence (age- or stage-structure and maternal effects are some other potential explanations). Similarly, not all predator-prey systems exhibit sustained oscillations characterized by delayed density dependence. Nevertheless, there is a sufficient mechanism/pattern congruence at least to narrow down the field of competing hypotheses. , Turchin et al.
