Figure S1: Cumulative number of YOY produced under each supplementation scenarios over 10 years. Head-start supplementation (top panels) scales with the initial size of the wild population (dashed lines), and captive breeding supplementation (bottom panels) is fixed based on effort (single solid line). Left panels depict release as larvae, right panels release as YOY.
Table S1: Mean estimates, variances, and sources for each vital rate used in the matrices Notes: ϕ = survival rate, F = fecundity, Prbreed = probability of breeding, HS = head-start, CB = captive breeding, CBW = captive breeding + wild survival as larvae spend some time in captivity before release in this scenario.
Table S2: Generalized linear models for larval survival at Maria Slough ranked according to QAICC Notes: df = degrees of freedom, logLik = log likelihood, and w = weight.
Table S3: Generalized linear models for larval survival at Morris Valley ranked according to QAICC df = degrees of freedom, logLik = log likelihood, and w = weight.
Table S4: Annual adult survival estimates for R. pretiosa. SE is the standard error of the estimate.
