4,5,6 Chapter Q&A's Chapter 4, 5 & 6 Question & Answers Toni M. Cunningham SCI207: Dependence of Man on the Environment (GSM1120C) Instructor: Jeremiah Convery May 19, 2011 Chapter 4: Text Practice Quiz Questions 4, 5 and 8. 4. Why do some economists consider human resources more important than natural resources in determining a countys future? 5. In which regions of the world will most population growth occur during the twenty-first century? What conditions contribute to rapid population growth in these locations? 6. What is the dependency ratio, and how might it affect the United States in the future? Discussion Questions 1 and 6. 1. Suppose that you were head of a family planning agency in India. How would you design a scientific study to determine if the effectiveness of different approaches to population stabilization? How would you account for factors such as culture, religion, education, and economics? 6. In chapter 3, we discussed carry capacities, what do you think the maximum and optimum carrying capacity for humans are? Why is this a more complex question for humans than it might be for other species? Why is designing experiments in human demography difficult? Chapter 5: Text Practice Quiz Questions 1, 9 and 16. 1. Why did ecologists want to reintroduce wolves to Yellowstone park? What foals did they have, and have their goals been achieved? 9.

Why are they often even important, though they are costly to maintain? Discussion Questions 1 and 5. 1. Many poor tropical countries point out that hectare of shrimp ponds can provide 1000 times as much annual income as the same area in an intact mangrove forest. Debate this point with a friend or classmate. What are the arguments for and against saving mangroves? 5. Many ecologists and resource scientists work for government agencies to study resouces and resource management. Do these scientist serve the public best if they try to do pure sciences, or if they try to support the political positions of democratically elected representatives. Who, after all represent the positions of their constituents? Chapter 6: Text Practice Quiz Questions 2, 3 and 10. 2. What land use is responsible for most forest losses in Africa? In Latin America? In Asia? 3. What is a debt-for-nature swap? 10. What is a biosphere reserve and grow does it differ from a wilderness area or wildlife preserve? Discussion Questions 1 and 6. 1. Conservationists argue that watershed protection and other ecological functions of forests are more economically valuable that timber. Timber companies argue that continued production supports stable jobs and local economies. If you were a judge attempting to decide which group was right what evidence would you need on both sides? How would you gather this evidence? 6. Oil and gas companies want to drill in several parks, monuments, and wildlife refuges. Do you think this should be allowed? Why or why not? Under what conditions would drilling be allowable?
