DeLara introduced an interesting new indicator for Management Strategy Evaluation. Expected value of an indicator (e.g. spawning biomass) conditional on the indicator being below the reference point. want it to be above a threshold-Leads to more precaution
#WCNRM2019 @ResModelAsso @MattHHolden gives us rules of thumb when using Demographic Distribution Models to deal with spatial autocorrelation in SDMs – populations must be measured below a minimum size that increases with overcompensatory behaviour. Most promising for use with invasives
