Abstract: We propose models for size-structured populations which allow growth rates to vary with individuals (growth rate distribution across all possible individual growth rates). A theoretical framework for the estimation of the growth rate distribution from data of sized population densities is developed. Numerical examples are presented to demonstrate feasibility of the ideas.
