# Exercise 1

Exercise 1: Working a case study example.

At the prompt, type 'Lab3'. Input the data code for your species.

Look at IUCN CR Criteria A2:

Choose 80% decline, 3 x gen time horizon.

Look at IUCN EN Criteria A2:

Choose 50% decline, 3 x gen time horizon.

Look at IUCN VU Criteria A2:

Choose 20% decline, 3 x gen time horizon.

Use 'edit:copy figure' in matlab, and paste these into a Word document. Upload using the 'user material' option in Chinook.

Summarize what the information the CDA analysis gives us on long-term % increase or decline (exp(mu) x 100), and the A2 risk criteria. Comment on what can be said with little certainty versus what can be said with relative certainty -- given the data available to you.
