Figure S1 A graph used to determine biologically-realistic values for the length of the reproductive lifetime, t, and the threshold age, T for mortality values that range from 10−3 to 10−2. Each line gives the age at which the proportion P of the population is alive. Given a mortality value, a value for t is biologically realistic if only a small proportion of individuals is alive by that age. Similarly, a value for T is biologically realistic, if at least some proportion of individuals is alive by that age. Assuming that P represents the proportion of individuals that is critical to determine realistic parameter values, for a given P and mortality, values of t that lie above the line and values for T that lie below the line are biologically realistic.
