Question

A population of arctic birds has migrated farther north than previous years. The new location is good for the birds, and the population exhibits exponential growth. As time passes, the population begins to level out and maintain a steady population size. (10 points)

- Suppose that researchers say ? > 1. What does this mean? (1 point)
- In the first year, there are 200 births from an original
population size of 2000. There are also 100 deaths, 10 emmigrants,
and 20 immigrants. What is the value of
**r**? (3 points) - Given the
**r**you calculated in part B, estimate the value of ?. (2 points)*If you did not successfully find an**r**in part B, you can use the value 0.123 as your**r**and still get full credit for part C if you calculate ? correctly.* - Estimate the population size after 3 years using the initial
population size of 2000 and the values calculated above in parts B
and C. (2 points).
*If you did not successfully find an**r**in part B, you can use the value 0.123 as your**r**and still get full credit for part D if you calculate population size correctly.* - Give an example of a density-independent population size regulator for these birds. (2 points)

Answer #1

**At the constant birth rate in Population through time
and is never be limited by food or disease is known as Exponential
Groth.The formula for Exponential Growth=dNdt=rNdNdt=rN where dNdt
is the rate of change in population size r is the biotic
potentialand N is the population size.**

**if lambda>1 means there is an increase in
population.**

**Value of r can be calculated by the
equation**

**r= Birth-Death/ Actual population**

**here it is birth=200**

**death=100**

**Actual population=2000 so r= 200-100/2000**

**=.05**

**ie r is positive and greater than 0 .it means that
population is increasing.**

**Density -independent population size regulator for these
birds are weather and cimate,exert their influences on population
size regardless of the population's
density.**

Texas is home to more than one million undocumented immigrants,
and most of them are stuck in low-paying jobs. Meanwhile, the state
also suffers from a lack of skilled workers. The Texas Workforce
Commission estimates that 133,000 jobs are currently unfilled, many
because employers cannot find qualified applicants (The Boston
Globe, September 29, 2011). Texas was the first state to pass a law
that allows children of undocumented immigrants to pay in-state
college tuition rates if they have lived in...

Sunshine Enterprises Case Study “I think the waiter wrote in an
extra $25 tip on my Sunshine Café bill after I received and signed
my credit card receipt,” Mr. Mark Otter said to the restaurant
manager, Brad Gladiolus. “Mr. Otter, mail me a copy of the
restaurant receipt and I’ll investigate,” responded Mr. Gladiolus.
“I don’t have the receipt—I lost it—but I have my monthly credit
card statement,” replied Mr. Otter. Mr. Gladiolus hesitated, then
said, “Mr. Otter, I don’t...
