Q: What is the carrying capacity (K) for this population? 300
Q: Carrying capacity (K) represents one equilibrium point in this model. Try to find another equilibrium point- that is, a point where the population neither grows nor declines. 100.
Max Fecundity, Min Mortality set to equal each other. Also, set Allele threshold to equal population value.
Q: is this equilibrium a stable equilibrium or an unstable equilibrium?
Q: if you plot birth and death rates as a function of density in this model, can you identify the two equilibria?
Q: Why do Allee effects generally spell bad news for w wildlife conservation and management?
Q: Do you support bringing back the passenger pigeon? Why or why not??
Yes, because they benefit other members of the food chain, particularly predators. One of the reasons they were hunted to extinction is because they were a tasty, cheap food for humans. They were also a Keystone species.
