When citing from the literature, please paraphrase, and cite inline as is done in scientific journal articles, if needed. DO NOT QUOTE.
10. Answer the following questions using Figure 7 (with 0.05 increments).
The howler monkey population goes extinct when mortality due to pesticide exposure reaches 0.2. (1 point)
The capuchin monkey population goes extinct when mortality due to pesticide exposure reaches 0.25. (1 point)
11. Describe briefly how varying dispersal frequency might contribute to the difference in response between the two species to the presence of toxins in the environment. Recall the fact that this toxin is distributed equally throughout the environment, and that the toxin has a mortality rate less than 1. Your answer should be 100 – 200 words. (2 points)
12. What could you do to make the model we used more realistic for simulating the consequences of fragmentation? Offer at least 2 suggestions and explain why these alterations would improve our results. If you changed the model by adding or modifying parameters as suggested above, how would they change your results? Discuss whether each modification would increase or decrease the likelihood of the monkey population surviving 500 years. Your answer should be approximately 150 – 250 words. (3 points)
