chapter 54:
54.1:
population: Any group of organisms coexisting at the same time and in the same
place and capable of interbreeding with one another.
population structure: The proportions of individuals in a population belonging to
different age classes (age structure). Also, the distribution of the population in space.
population density: The number of individuals (or modules) of a population in a unit
of area or volume.
The study of the birth, death, and movement rates that create population dynamics
(changes in population structure and density) is known as demography.
life table: A table showing, for a group of equalaged individuals, the proportion still
alive at different times in the future and the number of offspring they produce
during each time interval.
cohort : A group of similar-aged organisms, considered as it passes through time.
survivorship: The proportion of individuals in a cohort that is alive at some time in
the future.
m2/n2 = n1/N, n1 = amount initially marked, N = estimated population, n2 = amount
capture one 2nd catch, m2 = number of marked caught
54.2:
life history: The stages an individual goes through during its life.
54.3:
exponential growth: Growth, especially in the number of organisms in a population,
which is a geometric function of the size of the growing entity: the larger the entity,
the faster it grows
r= delta N/Delta T = (b-d)N, r = net reproductive rate, delta N = the change in # of
indivs, delta t = change in time, b = avg pop. per capita birth rate, d = avg pop. per
capita death rate. b includes both births and immigrations, and d includes both
deaths and emigrations

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!

Balancing social life With academics can be difficult, that is why I'm so glad that OneClass is out there where I can find the top notes for all of my classes. Now I can be the all-star student I want to be.
