5 Written questions

5 Matching questions

  1. abortion rate
  2. age structure
  3. birth rate
  4. species
  5. logistic carrying capacity
  1. a In terms of the logistic curve, the population size at which births equal deaths and there is no net change in the population
  2. b the estimated number of abortions per 1000 women aged 15 to 44 in a given year
  3. c 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
  4. d a group of individuals capable of interbreeding and producing fertile offspring
  5. e the rate at which births occur in a population, measured either as the number of individuals born per unit of time or as the percentage of births per unit of time compared with the total population

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. The net increase of some factor per unit time. In ecology, the growth rate of a population is sometimes measured as the increase in numbers of individuals or biomass per unit time and sometimes as a percentage increase in numbers or biomass per unit time
  2. genetically determined maximum possible age to which an individual of a species can live
  3. 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
  4. the study of human population characteristics, such as age structure, demographic transition, total fertility, human population and environmental relationships, death-rate factors, and standard of living
  5. The 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

5 True/False questions

  1. chronica group of individuals capable of interbreeding and producing fertile offspring

          

  2. demographythe study of human population characteristics, such as age structure, demographic transition, total fertility, human population and environmental relationships, death-rate factors, and standard of living

          

  3. total fertilitya group of individuals of the same species living in the same area or interbreeding and sharing genetic information

          

  4. abortion ratiothe estimated number of abortions per 1000 women aged 15 to 44 in a given year

          

  5. death ratethe rate at which births occur in a population, measured either as the number of individuals born per unit of time or as the percentage of births per unit of time compared with the total population
