Represented Graphically Using Birth
1. List the two biomes that are dominated by grasses. What are the abiotic factors that control the dominance of grasses in these biomes?
Your response should be at least 200 words in length.
In this unit, you learned that the characteristics of a population at a given time can be represented graphically using birth and death rate data, among many other parameters. In Part I of this activity, you will work with a simple data set to create a human survivorship curve and answer questions about the results and the data itself. In Part II, you will work with interactive age structure diagrams in an online simulator to analyze population growth trends for both China and the United States. For an example of an age structure diagram, see the presentations for the Unit II Lesson.
