To evaluate: The result of an experiment that was conducted similar to module 1.5.
Given: Two populations of mice were chosen. One population had a dark colored coat suiting; the dark inland habitat and the other population had a light colored coat suiting the light colored beach sand, thus helping the two populations to camouflage to their respective habitats and escape from their predators. Hypothetically, a researcher performed the same experiment with plastic mice placing both the types in both the locations, but his results varied from the original wherein he recorded that the dark colored models were predated more as opposed to the original experiment.
Concept introduction: Predator and prey relationships are studied under competition in ecology in order to understand the various tropic levels and how their relationships affect the food web they are a part of. Predator and prey both evolve together as competition between both to survive is a major selection process. Predator and prey relationship is a cyclic process and is studied with several models. Predator–prey systems are unstable and are highly dynamic.
