Population Ecology Lab – Part A Please complete the following for full credit on this lab. 0.1 Please identify any “lab partners” you had for this lab activity. None MAKE SURE THAT YOUR ANSWERS ARE YOUR OWN AND REFLECT YOUR UNDERSTANDING. YOUR ANSWERS SHOULD NOT BE IDENTICAL TO YOUR LAB PARTNERS’ ANSWERS. Assignment 1 - Part 1: Population Growth of Brown Sparrows Part 1a 1.1 Based on the population size plot, what is your estimate of the carrying capacity for the population of brown sparrows? Based on the population plot, my estimate of the carrying capacity for the population of brown sparrows is 1,150. 1.2 After running the experiment at least three times, describe any inconsistencies between the trials. There are inconsistencies with this experiment because each trial produced a different carrying capacity for the population of brown sparrows. The first graph is inconsistent with the other two because it has a shorter first increase but each graph seems to have its own crests and troughs which show up sporadically throughout the graph. 1.3 Attach the “population size” graphs from these three runs of the experiment.

Part 1b 1.4 Formulate a hypothesis to predict the effects of a decrease in clutch size on the population number of the brown sparrow. If the clutch size of the brown sparrow decreases, then the population number of the brown sparrow will decrease. 1.5 Did the results agree with your hypothesis? Why or why not? Yes, the results agreed with my hypothesis because when the clutch size was .5 and
