DescriptionContemporary efforts to conserve populations and species often employ population viability analysis (PVA), a specific application of population modeling that estimates the effects of environmental and demographic processes on population growth rates. These models can also be used to estimate probabilities that a population will fall below a certain level. This information is helpful in understanding the threat of a species' extinction from environmental and demographic factors.
