SOLVING
As part of a long-term elephant study, biologists counted individuals
in a population of elephants each spring. In one year, there were 18
males and 34 females. Over the following year, each female gave
birth, of which 28 survived. Nine elephants died due to predators. A
construction project cleared 50 acres of nearby forested land,
causing 5 males and 19 females to immigrate into the experimental
area. Competition for females increased, resulting in the emigration
of 10 males to a new territory in search of mates.
is the growth rate of this population?
elephants/year
