 Distribution Patterns and Population Size Estimates (Bio 30) 1. Examine the three diagrams of hypothetical moose populations. What are the two different distribution patterns shown?2. The shaded parts of the diagrams represent the transects that were used to sample each population. calculate the area per transect. (1.0 cm represents 1.0km)    Hint: Area per transect is length x width. Use a ruler. 3. For each hypothetical population, count the moose within each transect 4. For each hypothetical population, calculate the average number of moose per transect5. Calculate the average density of each hypothetical moose Attached file(s)  Thumbnail(s): You must login or register to gain access to these attachments. Read 10089 times 15 Replies

 Hi ! I have a question for number 2, what did you measure for the length ? Was it only the parts that's not shaded?Post Merge: 11 years agoQuote from: FoveaCentrali (11 years ago)Hi ! I have a question for number 2, what did you measure for the length ? Was it only the parts that's not shaded?Oooooh ! I'm sorry, that was stupid. I get it now! Thanks so much!

 I'll post the answers as soon as I get my papers back. I'm in doubt about question 5. I'm not sure if I need to count the moose on each diagram and use that for the equation or just the ones on the transects. ~_~

 Thank you!  Post Merge: 10 years agoPlease correct me if I am wrong but #5 should be....Pattern 1: Dp = 4.7moose/4.8km2  Dp = 0.98 moose/km2Pattern 2: Dp = 7.3 moose/4.8km2  Dp = 1.5 moose/km2 Pattern 3: Dp = 8.5 moose/4.8km2  Dp  = 1.77 moose/km2.....should it not?

 Okay these are the correct answers, sorry, made a mistake above. Pattern 1: Dp = 4.7moose/4.8km2  Dp = 0.98 moose/km2Pattern 2: Dp = 7.3 moose/4.8km2  Dp = 1.5 moose/km2 Pattern 3: Dp = 9.8 moose/4.8km2 Dp = 2.0 moose/km2

 Excuse me if I’m wrong, but doesn’t pattern 3 have 59 moos in all 6 transects. From the first transect to the last it’s 9, 20, 5, 14, 8 and 3. 9+20+5+14+8+3=59. Thus 59/6=9.8 followed by the Dp which is 9.8/4.8km2 =2.04 = 2
