Ambiguous and vague answers will NOT be counted as correct. 1. In the year 2005, the moose population on a remote Lake Superior island declined sharply. But the numbers of the moose's only predators - wolves (that could prey only on the weak moose) - were holding steady, according to the figures from what may be the longest running study of any predator-prey system in the world. A young budding scientist wanted to study this peculiar predator prey behavior of the wolves and the moose and hence decided to spend some time in the wilderness. He set himself at a distance from a herd of moose and video-taped their behavior over a period of time. After a couple of months, the tapes were reviewed and it was seen that the moose numbers dwindled rapidly but the population of wolves remained more or less stable. Further investigation showed that there was a real abundance of moose ticks during the last three years. ( Total 5 points ) TAs: CHOOSE ANY TWO FROM QUESTIONS (a) TO (c): TAs: THEN REARRANGE THE NUMBERING: a. How did the Tick population affect the Moose population? ( 1 point ) The population of ticks caused a decrease in the numbers of moose. b. What role did the Ticks play in this Predator – Prey scenario? ( 1 point ) The ticks play the role as parasite to the moose in this scenario.

    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.
