The Florida panther population has been a population studied for many years by conservation scientists.

Analyze the results of the introduction of Texas panthers, and identify the conclusion scientists would come to based on the data.

A

The introduction of Texas panthers was not successful due to the decline in numbers of pure Florida panthers.

B

The introduction of Texas panthers was not successful due to the disappearance of pure Everglades panthers.

C

The introduction of Texas panthers was successful because of the increased number of panthers that were a genetic cross breed.

D

The introduction of Texas panthers was successful because the introduced pumas did not persist in the population.

E

No conclusions can be drawn from the data shown in the graph.
