Unformatted text preview: notice that the number of fish caught within each species is relatively high and fluctuate by only one and two increments. Given this information, we know that even if the sample size were 25 we would still catch the species’ of fish in about the same proportions, since no species is rarer than the other. 3) The rarified sample for Argentina is smaller than the number of species in the larger sample because unlike Central America, Argentina does have two species of fish which are rarer than the others (See Table 2, column Ni). The last two species, K and L, and possibly even I and J, will be less likely to be captured when the sample size is shrunken to 25 fish....

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
