Happy Wed!

9/8/2010

  • State which species of turtle nests in the greatest numbers on Jupiter Island.

  • (1 mk)

  • (b) Compare the distribution of nesting in the three species of turtle along the eastern coastline of Florida. (2 mks)


  • (a) loggerheads / Carettacaretta 1

  • (b) all three species nest over the same range of latitudeson the same beaches/areas;density of loggerheads is greatest and leatherbacks is lowest;similar relative densities/numbers on the different beaches / latitudes;all three had most nests on Jupiter;more loggerheads at northern end of range /(Do not accept answers givingaround 28 (°N) / on Melbourne;) the range 26–28 or 26–30.) 2 max


I ll check your ib journal on quiz day for 5 1 and 5 3
I’ll CHECK your IB Journal on quiz day for 5.1 and 5.3

Don’t forget...

  • “Exercises” ?s as you read or after we’ve gone over in class

    • Make sure you GET IT

  • “Practice ?s” @ end of chapter— old exam ?s

    • Studying for quizzes/tests!


5 3 populations
5.3Populations



5 3 2 pop growth curves
5.3.2 Pop growth curves

  • MODEL

    • Change in pop size over time

  • Pop expanding into a habitat offering INITIAL LOW RESISTANCE or LOW LIMITING FACTORS

    A-Exp = rapid pop growth rate

    B-slowing but still high

    C-plateau = pop remains stable w/time;

    slight oscillations


5 3 3 phases of pop growth curve details
5.3.3 Phases of pop growth curve…details!

EXPONENTIAL PHASE

  • Low/reduced limiting factors

  • Pop expands exponentially into hab. @ 2n where n= # of generations

  • natality + imm. > mortality + emigr.

  • Note that it does not mean that death/ emigration= 0 !!!


When do you observe exp phase in nature
When do you observe exp. phase in nature?

Pop of germinating annual plants in new season

Bacterial pop @ onset of infection

Succession—any species’ pop entering previously uninhabited area


5 3 3 transition phase
5.3.3 TRANSITION PHASE

  • Resources reduced, become limiting

  • Competition…not all survive

    • NATURAL SELECTION!

  •  lower rate of increase in pop


5 3 3 population plateau
5.3.3 POPULATION PLATEAU

  • Pop remains constant over time/generations

  • Natality + imm = mortality + emig

  • Pop size determined by CARRYING CAPACITY of habitat @ that time




5 3 4 factors limiting pop growth
5.3.4 Factors limiting pop growth

  • With unltd resources, pop would keep increasing…exponentially!

  • REALITY CHECK!

  • Environmental resistance limits it & determines carrying capacity

    • Shortage of food/prey

    • Predation, parasitism

    • Disease

    • Accumulation of waste

    • Shortage of space/territory
