FERTILITY SCHEDULES IN NATURE In nature, what sorts of fertility schedules
do we find? Animal ecologists distinguish between semelparous and iteroparous
reproduction. Plant ecologists use the equivalent terms monocarpic and ...
Because it is a straight line on a logarithmic graph, the Type II survivorship
Schedule is one in which the mortality rate is constant throughout life. Few
organisms have a true Type II survivorship curve, because it is unusual for the
probability of ...
