5 Written questions

5 Matching questions

  1. per-capita availability
  2. population momentum or lag effect
  3. optimal carrying capacity
  4. growth rate
  5. demography
  1. a the amount of a resource available per person
  2. b the continued growth of a population that occurrs after achievement of replacement level fertility is reached
  3. c the study of populations, especially their patterns in space and time
  4. d 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
  5. e 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 Multiple choice questions

  1. a disease that is usually present in a population, typically occurring in a relatively small but constant percentage of the population
  2. a group of individuals capable of interbreeding and producing fertile offspring
  3. The rate at which deaths occur in a population, measured either as the number of individuals dying per unit time or as the percentage of a population dying per unit time
  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 estimated number of abortions per 1000 women aged 15 to 44 in a given year

5 True/False questions

  1. replacement level fertilityfertility rate required for a population to remain a constant level

          

  2. life expectancystructure 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

          

  3. maximum lifetimegenetically determined maximum possible age to which an individual of a species can live

          

  4. age structurestructure 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

          

  5. demographic transitionThe pattern of change in birth and death rates as a country is transformed from undeveloped to developed. THere are three stages: (1) in an undeveloped country, birth and death rates are high and the growth rate is low; (2) the death rate decreases, but the birth rate remains high and the growth rate is high; (3) the birth rate drops toward the death rate and the growth and the growth rate therefore also decreases
