Allee growth model with distributed carrying capacity l (l-distributed Allee model). The initial distribution is truncated exponential on the interval l [0, 1]. Other parameters are m = 0.1, c = 1; the initial population size is N(0) = 0.2. a Time to escape is determined by initial population composition, given by the parameter μ. b Expected value E t[l] increases simultaneously with population size, (c) as does variance Var t[l]. Noticeably, variance increases much more gradually compared to the previous cases, and decreases rapidly after the population reaches a steady state
