Develop a research plan to study at least three aspects of population ecology of organisations within a population of organisations of your choice.
The aspect includes but is not limited to age dependence, age related inertia, innovativeness and adaptability, density dependence, density delay, propagation strategies, niche width and resource partitioning.
This plan should specify population boundaries (i.e., conceptual, formal, geographical, temporal, etc.), the longitudinal data sources the study would rely on, and several working hypotheses.
It should be specific about the operationalisation of the independent, dependent and control variables, and the models that you want to consider.
Use the theory fragments related to the aspects you choose, to explain why your hypotheses are both interesting and reasonable.
