DefinitionTerm
Group of individuals of a specific age
Type 1, most individuals approach the species max life span, few progeny, extensive time and energy invested in offspring, represented by the letter K
Percentage of offspring that survive to a particular age class (Ix = Nx/No)
Many small populations isolated by habitat fragmentation
Another name for density independent growth
Type 3, more mature individuals have a greater chance of survival, little to no energy spent on parental care, represented by letter r
Displays the distribution of the number of individuals in specific age groups
Average number of female offspring produced by a single female over time
Form of growth that depends on a carrying capacity
Average number of female offspring that a female produces over the course of her lifetime
Part of a metapopulation, large and stable, genetically diverse and subject to emigration
Model that estimates the likelihood that a population will avoid extinction for a given time period
DefinitionTerm
Type 2, death rate is constant, moderate number of offspring produced, some parental care of offspring
Method of population estimation that assumes organisms are static or relatively static, and are evenly distributed
Average number of surviving children each woman has during her lifetime
Part of a metapopulation, small ephemeral population with low genetic diversity, subject to colonization or extinction
What does this equation represent? (births-deaths)/population size
Summarizes how likely it is that individuals of each age class in a population will survive and reproduce
Method of population estimation that assumes populations are static
The study of how and why populations change over time
Number of female offspring produced by a single female in age class x, Mx
Geographic distribution of a species
Group of individuals of the same species living in the same area at the same time
Study of the factors that determine population size and structure, now and through time
