For example, detailed age-structured data may be less important than data about the form and strength of density-dependence. In addition, time series of population states may be especially valuable. Time series data provide information on the stochastic behavior of population(s), and allow us to evaluate alternative models by contrasting them with the actual behavior of the population. Importantly, PYA itself can help determine where data needs are greatest, and in this way guide future data collection.
