  5. demography
  1. a the continued growth of a population that occurrs after achievement of replacement level fertility is reached
  2. b The estimated average number of years (or other time period used as a measure) that an individual of a specific age can expect to live
  3. c the number of individuals or proportion of the population in each age clas
  4. d the study of populations, especially their patterns in space and time
  5. e a disease that is usually present in a population, typically occurring in a relatively small but constant percentage of the population

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. structure of a population divided into groups by age. Sometimes the groups represent the actual number of each age in the population; sometimes the group represents the percentage or proportion of the population of each age
  2. the estimated number of abortions per 1000 live births in a given year
  3. the maximum number of human beings which can live on Earth at the same time; is dependent on the quality of life people desire and are willing to accept
  4. a group of individuals capable of interbreeding and producing fertile offspring
  5. the maximum abundance of a population or species that can exist in an ecosystem without degrading the ability of the ecosystem to maintain: (1) that population of species; (2) all necesary ecosystem processes; (3) the other species found in that ecosystem

5 True/False questions

  1. replacement level fertilityaverage number of children expected to be born to a woman during her lifetime

          

  2. populationa group of individuals capable of interbreeding and producing fertile offspring

          

  3. zero population growtha group of individuals of the same species living in the same area or interbreeding and sharing genetic information

          

  4. logistic carrying capacitythe maximum abundance of a population or species that can exist in an ecosystem without degrading the ability of the ecosystem to maintain: (1) that population of species; (2) all necesary ecosystem processes; (3) the other species found in that ecosystem

          

  5. logistic growth curveThe S-shaped growth curve that is generated by the logistic growth equation. In the logistic, a small population grows rapidly, but the growth rate slows down, and the population eventually reaches a constant size
