Resources and Population Growth

Hard

(Originais Teachy 2023) - Question Hard of Biology

In a hypothetical ecosystem, there are two species of animals: Herbivores, which feed on plants, and carnivores, which feed on herbivores. Initially, the ecosystem has a large amount of plant resources, allowing the herbivore population to grow rapidly. In response to the increase in herbivores, the carnivore population also begins to grow. Over time, the herbivore population starts to decline due to the increased predation by carnivores and the depletion of plant resources. However, even as the herbivore population declines, the carnivore population continues to increase for a while before it too starts to decline. Explain, using your understanding of resources and population growth, why the carnivore population continued to grow even after the herbivore population began to decline.
a.
The carnivore population continued to grow after the herbivore population began to decline because the carnivores started to feed on plants.
b.
The carnivore population continued to grow after the herbivore population began to decline because the carnivores were able to reproduce faster than the herbivores.
c.
The reason the carnivore population continued to grow even after the herbivore population began to decline is due to the time lag between the availability of resources and the response of the population to these resources. When the herbivore population was high, it provided an abundant food source for the carnivores, allowing their population to increase.
d.
The carnivore population continued to grow after the herbivore population began to decline because the carnivores started to feed on each other.
e.
The carnivore population continued to grow after the herbivore population began to decline because the carnivores were able to find other sources of food outside the ecosystem.
