38 Multiple choice questions

  1. 0<lambda<1
  2. Models that allow for continuous time change in populations, overlapping generations, population growth is smooth curve, instantaneous rate: r
  3. Lambda=1
  4. Finite rate of population growth, ratio of population size during next time period to the population size for the current time period, difference equation for exponential growth, not always realistic because population growth doesn't always occur in discrete, annual events
  5. Group of organisms of a single species that interact and interbreed in a common place, boundaries are usually arbitrary, individuals within populations should have high probability of interbreeding
  6. Breeding in a pulse, ex. breeding only in spring
  7. The ratio of males:females
  8. r<0
  9. Number of individuals, raw numbers,
  10. Instantaneous rate of increase, biotic potential, innate capacity for increase, change in population size per individual per unit time
  11. The potential capability of an organism to produce young
  12. Actual number of organisms produced
  13. Number of individuals per unit area
  14. Births-Deaths+Immigrants-Emigrants
  15. Proportion of a population newly born in a unit of time
  16. Movement into a given area
  17. "BIDE" factors, natality (+), emigration(-), mortality(-), immigration (+)
  18. Breeding throughout year, not as simple to track
  19. Instantaneous death rate, per capita, deaths/individual/time
  20. Starting number of individuals in population at time 0
  21. Population where no immigration or emigration occurs
  22. The relative proportions of various age groups in a population
  23. Number of individuals at time t
  24. r>0
  25. Instantaneous birth rate, per capita, births/individual/time
  26. r=0
  27. Finite rate=discrete intervals (birth pulse), instantaneous rate=time interval very short (continuous, birth flow), finite rate= e^instantaneous rate, instantaneous rate= logsube finite rate
  28. Multiplication rate- growth rate, constant Exponential growth- geometric growth
  29. Movement out of a given area
  30. Intrinsic factors that contribute to a population's growth or decline, probabilities of dying and reproduction
  31. Size of population
  32. Increment of new individuals added to a wildlife population by natural reproduction, immigration, or stocking
  33. Lambda>1
  34. Proportion of a population dying in a unit of time
  35. Number of individuals at time t+1, 1 time interval later (usually years)
  36. Models for populations at a specific point in time, non-overlapping generations/discrete intervals, birth-pulse, finite rates (lambda)
  37. Sex ratio, age structure
  38. Spread or scatter, group based on resources and predators, patterns
