Today we calculated our squirrel carrying capacity and compared our data with that of our classmates. We then analyzed and interpreted this data to help us answer our lab analysis questions. Ultimately, we realized that there is a direct correlation between resource availability and population size. We discerned that when resources are abundant population size increases and, conversely, when resources are scarce population size decreases.
We answered most (if not all) lab analysis questions in class together as a whole group today.
