In this experiment, we looked and study the population of hermit crab and snails and the possible correlation of their distribution, and the occurrence of resource limitation. We collected shells and hermit crab from quadrants placed along a random location on a transect line. Are hermit crab population in rocky intertidal of Oahu resource limited? If so, why and what type of resource are limiting the population? What are the factor limiting the density of hermit crabs? NULL Hypothesis: There is no relationship between hermit crabs density and snail density. Alternative Hypothesis 1 (SHELL) Is the shell size available affecting the Hermit crab population There is a positive relationship between hermit crab density and snail density. Alternative Hypothesis 2 (HERMIT CRAB) --- Are hermit crabs occupying species of shell in proportion to what is available? There is a negative relationship between hermit crabs and snails.

    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.
