In the case study of this chapter, we considered a nearly 100-year record of theHudson’s Bay Company to estimate abundances of snowshoe hares and their Canadalynx predators (Lynx canadensis). Both species exhibited regular population cycles, withabundances peaking about every 10 years and then falling to low levels (see Figure12.2A).Suppose for the purposes of this problem that you know the following components ofthe relationship between snowshoe hare and lynx_r=0.4, m=0.9a=0.01, ba=0.011)Using the values above, calculate the isoclines for prey and predator. Then.graph the isoclines for each species. Label all your axes and isoclines.dP/dt = 0N= m/baN= 0.90/0.01 = 90 preydN/dt=0P=r/aP= 0.40/0.01= 40 predators
