Name: ___________________________________________________ Date: __________ Period: ______ Predator/Prey Relationship Simulation: The Lynx and The Hare Materials: Envelope of 300 hares One cardboard lynx The taped off area on your table represents the area inhabited by a population of snowshoe hares. Procedures: 1. Begin the simulation by populating the habitat with 3 hares and scattering them within the square, not on top of each other. 2. Drop the cardboard lynx into the square in an effort to capture (i.e., land on any portion of) as many hares as possible. In order to survive and reproduce, the lynx must capture at least 3 hares when tossed. Remove, if any, hares captured and enter the tallies for generation 1. 3. The hare population doubles between generations. Multiply “Number of Hares Survived” by 2 and enter the resulting number in the “Number of Hares” column for generation 2. Place the required number of hares in the square area (remember to scatter the pieces!). If no lynx survived the previous generation, another lynx moves into the area.

    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.
