Unformatted text preview: The green, obvious species had a high reproductive rate of 1.8 and the black, camouflaged species had a lower rate of 0.8 and next generations populations were determined in the same manner as the first test. Each species started with 15 individuals. The predator once again had twenty seconds to “hunt”. The final test attempted to model a full predator-prey relationship using variable populations for both the student and the beads being collected. In this test a single color of bead with reproductive rate of 1.6 and starting population of 30 was “eaten” by a single student who had twenty seconds to start with but on each successive generation had the number of captured prey divided by 0.5(predator reproductive rate) seconds. In each experiment the data was placed into pre-made tables then compiled in Microsoft Excel and made into graphs to express the data. All methods based on Predator/Prey (2006)....
