  24. Functional Response
  1. a Prey increases, predators have to learn how to see new prey, learn how to eat it then they become full, graph curves near bottom then grows and levels off
  2. b Predators control/regulate, carnivore predation, if predators are low life is low throughout trophic levels
  3. c Parasite feeding on another animal (host)
  4. d The concept that the effect of one kind of mortality is added to those of other sources of mortality
  5. e Response of predators to prey densities the behavioral response of individual predators in terms of consumption rate, type 1, 2, and 3, this is describing how they eat prey
  6. f Predator kills and eats animal prey
  7. g Predators suppression of prey is decreased thereby enhancing prey's impacts on the next lower trophic level, ex. herbivore impacts on plants
  8. h The more prey the more you eat, until you get full, graph grows and then levels off (becoming full)
  9. i Predators that can only eat certain prey
  10. j Predators that can eat almost anything
  11. k Special case of carnivory where predator and prey same species
  12. l Response of predators to prey densities, the response of predator populations through reproduction, immigration, and emigration, population numbers
  13. m Organism that depends in total or in part on killing another animal for food
  14. n Plants have all the power, plant limitation, if plant life is low life is low throughout trophic levels
  15. o Muskrats (or other animals) that are doomed to die
  16. p The concept that one kind of mortality largely replaces another kind of mortality in animal populations
  17. q Green-World hypothesis, most agree it is mixed
  18. r Hare and lynx populations fluctuate together but lynx predation doesn't have as big of an influence on hare as it seems, hare still has 10 year fluctuations related to vegetation without lynx.
  19. s Animal consumes living green plants or their seeds and fruits
  20. t 1. Learning- search image, specialized capture techniques 2. Predator switching 3. Prey refuge- cover
  21. u The act of predators capturing prey
  22. v Predation dampened cycles because of generalists and specialists, predators would switch to other prey (rabbits) then other prey would improve, habitat will improve and then can continue predation cycle
  23. w Predator is massive, prey is small, typically filter feeders- zooplankton and whales, and caribou and lichen, graph is linear
  24. x Did a study on muskrats and mink, when muskrat numbers were really high there was lots of predation by mink, but muskrats have a complicated social system where individuals become outcast, more likely to be preyed upon or die from starvation, compensatory nature of predation- "walking corpses", doesn't believe that predator control won't work
