Unformatted text preview: ther than face possible starvation. Later on in the early years of the nineteenth century, when Fort Vancouver became the headquarters of the Hudson's Bay Company, deer populations continued to fluctuate. David Douglas, Scottish botanical explorer of the 1830s. Found a disturbing change in the animal life around the fort during the period between his first visit in 1825 and his final contact with the fort in 1832. A recent Douglas biographer states:" The deer which once picturesquely dotted the meadows around the fort were gone [in 1832], hunted to extermination in order to protect the crops." 4. The phrase "in the same breath" in the passage is closest in meaning to ○ Impatiently ○ Humorously ○ Continuously ○ Immediately 5. The author tells the story of the explorers Lewis and Clark in paragraph 3 in order to illustrate which of the following points? ○The number of deer within the Puget sound region has varied over time. ○ Most of the explorers who came to the Puget sound area were primarily interested than in the West. ○There was more game for hunting in the East of the United States than in the West. ○Individual explorers were not as successful at locating games as were the trading companies. 6. According to paragraph 3, how had Fort Vancouver changed by the time David Douglas returned in 1832? ○The fort had become the headquarters for the Hudson's Bay Company. ○Deer had begun populating the meadows around the fort. ○Deer populations near the fort had been destroyed. ○Crop yields in the area around the fort had decreased. 154 [email protected] 在在在在在在 www.liuwenyong.com 在在在在在在在在在在在在在在在,在在在在在在在在在在 Paragraph 4 在 Reduction in numbers of game should have boded ill for their survival in later times.

No doubt the numbers of deer declined still further. Recall the fate of the Columbian white­tailed deer now in a protected status. But for the black­tailed deer, , human pressure has had just the opposite effect. Wild life zoologist Hulmut Buechner(1953), in reviewing the nature of biotic changes in Washington through recorded time, Says that "since the early 1940s, the state has had more deer than at any other time in its history, the winter population fluctuating around approximately 320,000 deer (mule and black­tailed deer), which will yield about 65,000 of either sex and any age annually for an indefinite period." 7. Why does the author ask readers to recall “ the fate of the Columbian white­tailed deer in the discussion of ” changes in the wilderness landscape? ○To provide support for the idea that habitat destruction would lead to population decline ○To compare how two species of deer caused biotic changes in the wilderness environment ○To provide an example of a species of deer that has successfully adapted to human settlement ○To argue that some deer species must be given a protected status 8.
