All questions are worth 8 points each. ANSWER IN THE SPACE ALLOTTED OR LESS. Use graphs or equations in your answers wherever you want or need to. Use correct units where applicable. You will need some of the following equations: dN/dt = rN dN/dt = rN[(K  N)/K] dN/dt = rNt[(K  N t J )/K] N t+1 = N t G = l(x)m(x)x / l(x)m(x) N t = N e rt lnN t = lnN + rt r = b d r = lnR /G N t+1 = Nt(1 + r d (K  N t )/K)) R = l(x)m(x) l(x) = S(x)/S(0) (1) What is the Malthusian (exponential) equation for population growth? dN/dt = rN (N t = N e rt would be used to predict population size at time t) Briefly state one of the assumptions that we make when using the Malthusian growth equation: Closed population; constant environment; all individuals the same; continuous (2) Describe or name the type of population dynamics illustrated in figures A through C (for C, focus on the part of the curve that is in the dashed circle).
