Unformatted text preview: 0.15 under ideal conditions, but which has a carrying capacity K of 500 Calculate ! N/ ! t for this population when N = 450. The species has overlapping generations. 5. Consider the population mentioned in the question 4. It is a species of large mammal and t is measured in one year units. What will be the population size in one year if N = 50 now? Answers. 1. N ~ 191 2. N ~ 364 3. r = 0.15 ! N/ ! t = 15, N = 246 4. ! N/ ! t = 12, ! N/ ! t = 6.75 5. First you need to calculate ! N/ ! t for N = 50, and add that to 50 to get the new N in one year. So, ! N/ ! t = 6.75, therefore N = 50 + 6.75 = 56.75...
