Figure 9.5 Submodel layer depiction of the cub compartment of the black bear model.

Input Sensitivity: Cubs to Plant Food 1: 1x 2: 10x 3: 19x

Input Sensitivity: Cubs to Fruit Food 1: 1x 2: 10x 3: 19x

Figure 9.6 Sensitivity of cubs to plant food and fruit. Plant food, principally leaves, fruits, and tubers, comprise 90% of their diets. Fruit is a late-season resource (after July) whereas plant food availability began in May-June. Fruit production occurs when they are approaching going into negative energy balance.

model varied slightly around 0.85, compared to 0.6 observed during 1989-1994. Besides the baseline simulation, model parameters were manipulated to investigate sensitivity relationships. The compartments were indicated to be more sensitive to inputs and less sensitive to outputs. The sensitivity relationships described for cubs generally hold true also for the other age classes in the model.
