The Ultimate Life or Death Situation of Bean Dynamics & Predator Selection.

Smaller, less visible prey such as the Beanus blackeus would survive and not be consumed by less versatile predators such as the Utensilus depressoreus; Whereas bigger more visible prey, such as the Beanus whites, will be consumed by more versatile predators such as the Utensilus clothespineus. Utensilus clothespineus should emerge as the most fit, and Utensilus chopstickeus should go extinct.


This study of Population Dynamics and Natural Selection took place on the grasses area of South TMCC campus, in front of the child care center. This site is one of the best areas because of the natural grass and environment. The natural height of the grass and the vast colors of each Beanus, and the wide range of adaptation of each Utensilus, create a unique diversity for each Beanus and Utensilus potential of survival. .

Beanus' population dynamics are limited if we represent them as species that produce offspring because they cannot move or adapt to nature except for one place. Their color limits them to selective advantage in most cases. The Utensilus have a much greater chance to succeed in the environment because of their ability to emigrate and resist the environment. Exponential growth can be reached in theory by Utensilus clothespineus and also by Beanus blackeus because of their both ability to gain individuals as well as increase population. .

This paper will mainly focus on the gain from generation to generation of each prey and predator, which will parallel examples of Exponential growth and/or Carrying Capacity.


The materials we used in this 1st lab experiment were the following: Utensilus forecepeus, Utensilus clothespineus, Utensilus chopstickeus, Utensilus depressoreus, Beanus blackeus, Beanus redeus, Beanus whiteus, Beanus pintoeus, Datasheet where we recorded all population increases and decreases, stomachs (cups ), and our will to survive so to speak (we being the stomachs)!.
