Appendix A. Further discussion on the theta-Ricker and generalized Beverton-Holt density-dependent models, a complete description of likelihood equations and methods of parameter estimation, elaboration on the simulation experiment, additional analyses of the Accipiter nisus data set, TRPN best-fit and ALT models for 25 additional time series from the GPDD, and a presentation of the joint profile likelihood surface of a Columba oenas data set for comparison with Bayesian posterior densities.
