Question

1.

A population's growth rate is likely to be highesta. when numbers are near (or at) the carrying capacity.

B. when numbers are near half of the carrying
capacity.

c. when numbers are at a minimum (near zero)

d. (none of the above - population growth rates do not
change.)

Answer #1

**B option is correct.** Population follows two
types of growth model based on growth strategies: Exponential or J
shaped growth model and logistic or S shaped or sigmoidal growth
model. Exponential model is expressed as dN/dT= rN and logistic
model is expressed as dN/dT= rN(K-N/K) where, N is initial
population, r is biotic potential and K is carrying capacity.
Carrying capacity of a given area refers to the amount of natural
resources which can sustain the maximum number of population and
maximum growth rate is present when N= K/2.

You are studying the predator-prey relationship between lizards
(predator) and beetles (prey). The intrinsic growth rate of beetles
in the absence of lizards (r) is 0.2 per week, and the
mortality rate of lizards in the absence of beetles (m) is
0.1 per week. The attack rate (a) is 0.004, and the
efficiency at which beetle biomass is converted into lizard biomass
(b) is 0.25.
Assuming the interaction follows Lotka?Volterra dynamics,
changes in prey and predator population sizes are determined...
