Depends what you want to do. Forming population projection matrices and doing the eigenanalysis to work out population growth rates, stable stage distributions, elasticities etc. is simple enough. Do you really need a package to do that? See ?eigen. What would you like to see in a population projection package?

Cheers,

Simon.
