I have a lab questions in ecology. I will provide all the information and the powerpoint and I will also attach all the questions…

You have to answer these question based on the power points that I will attach

  • 1. In the figure in the lab, which line (solid or dashed) represents the hare population. Explain.
  • 2.In the lynx and hare example, are the lynx considered specialists or generalists? Explain.
  • 3. Describe the population growth (or decline) patterns for Plant A and Herbivore A.
  • 4. Do you expect this trend to continue? Explain.
  • 5.Hypothesize: What do you predict will happen to the herbivore and plant populations after 100 days?
  • 6.Was your hypothesis correct? Explain.
  • 7.Describe the population trends for each species. Why do you think these trends occur?
  • 8.Hypothesize: Predict what will happen to each population after 100 days.
  • 9.Run the scenario for 100 days. Were your predictions correct? Explain.
  • 10.Describe what happened to the population of plant A. Why do you think this pattern occurred?
  • 11. What happened to the population of each plant species?
  • 12. nferring from this scenario ,which plant is the most competitive when an herbivore is present? Which one is the least competitive? Explain.
  • 13. Hypothesize: Compared to the previous scenarios, do you expect the population size of the herbivores to be higher or lower in this scenario? What about the plant population? Explain.
  • 14. Run the scenario for 100 days. Was your hypothesis correct? Explain.
  • 15.Can you think of an environment where there may be a simple food chain like this? Why or why not?
  • 16. Hypothesize: How do you expect the addition of the omnivore to change the outcomes of the scenario? Do you expect any species to go locally extinct? Explain.
  • 17. Run the simulation for 100 days. Describe what happened to each species. Which species went extinct? Which species reached equilibrium?
  • 18. Based on this scenario, what can you conclude about the competition and predation effects that omnivores can contribute to the food web?
  • 19. After 4 days, describe the general trend of each species. Hypothesize: What species will be dominant at the end of 100 days? Explain.
  • 20.Run the scenario for 100 days and describe what happened to each species. Was your hypothesis correct? Explain.
  • 21. Based on this scenario, what can you infer about generalist versus specialist feeders? In the real world, why do you think specialists have not gone locally extinct?
  • 22. Many humans are omnivores, how do you think human food consumption changes the food web?
  • 23. Hypothesize: Choose two organisms and predict what will happen to their populations at the end of 100 days.
  • 24. Run the simulation for 100 days. Was your hypothesis correct?
  • 25.What would happen in this imaginary ecosystem if all the producers (plants) were to die out? Explain.
  • 26. One group is missing from this simulation– decomposers. What role do decomposers play in the energy transfer within ecosystems?
  • 27. List the interactions you chose for your scenario.
  • 28. Describe what happened to the populations of each species involved in your simulation. What were the population sizes at the end of 100 dyas? Did any species go extinct?
  • 29. Come up with theories about why the patterns you observed existed. These theories may be about competition, diet selection, or any other process that may affect the interactions.
  • 30.How can humans who may not directly live in this ecosystem still manage to alter the flow of energy within the web?
