mee312020-sup-0001-AppendixS1.txtplain text document2KAppendix S1. R code for fitting three- and two-parameter von Bertalanffy growth functions (VBGF) using the nls() function.
mee312020-sup-0002-AppendixS2.txtplain text document2KAppendix S2. R code for assessing the effect of slight variations in growth coefficient (k) estimates on a simple yield-per-recruit model of Carcharhinus brevipinna.
mee312020-sup-0003-TableS1.docxWord document17KTable S1. Range of von Bertalanffy growth parameter values (L, k, and L0) used for the estimation of bias from fixing L0 through a life history continuum. Life histories were modeled based on carcharhinid and sphyrnid sharks. Table is ordered from high to low k values with the table split into two columns.
mee312020-sup-0004-TableS2.docxWord document54KTable S2. Data used for calculating empirical discrepancies between size at birth and the L0 parameter from the von Bertalanffy growth function. Species are ordered taxonomically. FL = fork length, TL = total length, PCL = precaudal length, and DW = disc width.References used in the table are listed below.
