BIOA02-Population Ecology II

1) What is the difference between active and passive parental care? : Passive parental care: before offspring are born Active: after offspring are born
2) One reproductive episode is defined as a) semelparity b) minimum fecundity(#of individuals produced) c)iteroparity : a) semelparity: store lots of energy to produce 1 young and then dies immediately after. This is considered maximum fecundity
3) True or False. Multiple Reproductive episodes are defined as: iteroparity. : True.
4) Why is iteroparity(=many interaction) considered more 'spreading the risk' : Because one failed event does not equal zero fitness. Small reproductive events. Early death = low fitness.
5) When is early reproduction favoured? : When an adult survival is low and animals do not grow large with age.
