## Abstract

Let f_{ a a∈A} be a C^{2} one-parameter family of non-flat unimodal maps of an interval into itself and a* a parameter value such that (a) f_{a*} satisfies the Misiurewicz Condition, (b) f_{a*} satisfies a backward Collet-Eckmann-like condition, (c) the partial derivatives with respect to x and a of f_{ a}^{ n} (x), respectively at the critical value and at a*, are comparable for large n. Then a* is a Lebesgue density point of the set of parameter values a such that the Lyapunov exponent of f_{a} at the critical value is positive, and f_{a} admits an invariant probability measure absolutely continuous with respect to the Lebesgue measure. We also show that given f_{a*} satisfying (a) and (b), condition (c) is satisfied for an open dense set of one-parameter families passing through f_{a*}.
