Q6.2. Suppose the rate of plant growth on Isle Royale supported an equilibrium moose population of 450 moose. In this scenario, there are no wolves present, and the environment is stable. One day, 200 additional moose arrive on the island. What would you predict the moose population size to be 30 years later? (Enter your answer as a number.) moose Submit Q6.3. Imagine two new volcanic islands spring up in the middle of the ocean. Each island is quickly founded by a few individuals of a species of aquatic bird that requires fresh water to thrive. The two islands differ in rainfall, one wetter and one drier. Assuming that rainfall determines carrying capacity for these birds, and that rainfall is consistent over time, what might the growth curves for the bird populations look like over many years for the two islands? Drier Wetter Wetter Drier Time Time Drier Wetter Wetter Drier N Time Time Submit Q6.4. The graphs below depict hypothesized population dynamics (population size, N, vs. time) for a predator-prey system. Based on what you've learned in this lab by investigating moose and wolf population cycles, which graph best represents a predator-prey system, and which curve (blue or red) describes dynamics for the predator species?

    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.
