Kazi Sakiouzzaman BIO 356 022308 Lab 3: Population Regulation 1. Use the curve in Figure 1 below to calculate R, the growth rate, and the population abundance in the next time step under the following two scenarios: N(t) = 60 and N(t) = 400. Compar
Lab 1: Exponential Growth
1. What is R? What two components of R did we manipulate in this lab? R is defined as the rate of change of a specific population over a given amount of time. A positive growth rate indicates that the population is increasi

Lab 6: Metapopulations 1. Whooping cranes have been saved from extinction by a series of captive breeding programs. In an effort to reestablish wild populations, conservation biologists have been introducing captive birds to their native habitat. Im
Lab 2: Variation 1. Define in your own words demographic stochasticity. Does demographic stochasticity tend to have a larger, smaller, or equal effect on a large compared to a small population? Demographic stochasticity is defined as the variability
