Question

You are studying a population of flowering plants for several years. When you present your research findings you make the statement that, “Increased allocation of resources to reproduction relative to growth diminished future fecundity.” Which of the following graph descriptions could accurately present your data?
a) With seeds in the current year on the y-axis and seeds in the previous year on the x-axis, you would see a line that increased from left to right
b) With survivorship on the y-axis and number of seeds produced on the x-axis, you would see a line that decreased left to right.
c) With leaf area on the y-axis and number of seeds produced on the x-axis, you would see a line that increased left to right
d) With survivorship on the y-axis and number of seeds produced on the x-axis, you would see a line that increased left to right.
e) With seeds in the current year on the y-axis and seeds in the previous year on the x-axis, you would see a line that decreased from left to right

Option A

Explanation:

The graph for this problem must depict the following “”Increased allocation of resources to reproduction relative to growth diminished future fecundity.”

Hence, the survivor ship must be on the Y axis and the resources on the X axis.

Here the resources include the number of seeds produced.

hence, the higher is the number of seeds (resource), the lower is the survivorship (future fecundity)

Hence, option A is correct
