Koons_et_al_supplement.r contains in-line R code for implementing a Gompertz state-space model of population dynamics with known extractions using the R2jags package that calls JAGS (which must be installed on your computer). On line 100, additional code is provided for estimating posterior model probabilities among a small set of hypothesized models.
