Name:_____________________ Section:_______________  Assignment #2—Life Tables The life table below has been adapted from:  conservation.  Conservation Biology   14 (3): 629-638. The koala ( Phascolarctos cinereus ) is an arboreal  marsupial in Australia and a top conservation priority. Koalas  feed entirely on leaves from  Eucalyptus  trees, a food almost no  other creature enjoys. Some populations are declining, while  others appear to be stable, necessitating accurate future  population predictions and demographic measurements. Many  threats may be contributing to population declines, including  habitat loss, small population size, the inherent low fecundity of  koalas and disease. The following data are loosely taken from a  project that used a computer program called VORTEX
