New Predator

APBIO-GEVK43

On the island with a deer population of 100, a new lone predator was introduced.

How will this affect the deer population and the community where the deer live?

A

One lone predator will not have much affect on a population of 100 deer. The surrounding community will not be affected.

B

One lone predator will reduce the deer population. This reduction in the deer population will reduce the other organisms in the community that depend on the deer for energy. The organisms in the community that are eaten for energy by the deer will have an increase of the number in their population.

C

One lone predator will not have much affect on a population of 100 deer. The top producers in the community will be reduced.

D

One lone predator will reduce the deer population. The surrounding community will not be affected.
