Allee growth model with distributed growth parameter c (c-distributed Allee model). The initial distribution is truncated exponential on the interval c [0, 1]. Other parameters are m = 0.1, l = 1; the initial population size is N(0) = 0.2. a Time to escape is determined by the initial population composition, given by parameter μ. b Expected value of c increases simultaneously with population size, (c) as does variance Var t[c]. Noticeably, later escape in this example correlates with lower variance at the steady state
