Abstract

Abstract The use of a summative method of prredicting organism development under fluctuating environmental conditions based on fixed environment results is considered where time of entry to the environment is variable. Methods of comparing predicted with observed development under fluctuating environment are developed where starting and finishing times are available for each organism and relatable to each other and for the less informative case, where the times are available but not relatable to each other for each organism. Methods for calculating the variance of the comparison of predicted versus observed development for the two cases are presented.
