Problem 18E

A herd of American buffalo (bison) can be modeled by a stage matrix similar to that for the spotted owls. The females can be divided into calves (up to 1 year old), yearlings (1 to 2 years), and adults. Suppose an average of 42 female calves are born each year per 100 adult females. (Only adults produce offspring.) Each year, about 60% of the calves survive, 75% of the yearlings survive, and 95% of the adults survive.For xk = ( ck , yk , ak ), where the entries in xk are the numbers of females in each life stage at year k.a. Construct the stage-matrix A for the buffalo herd, such that xk + 1 = Axk for k b. [M] Show that the buffalo herd is growing, determine the expected growth rate after many years, and give the expected numbers of calves and yearlings present per 100 adults.

Aggression  Stereotype is that men are more aggressive: not true!  Response form: when they were looking at aggression in the 70’s they would watch kids aggressive behavior (hitting and kicking) on the playground and found that the boys were more aggressive and that is where the stereotype came from. However, while this may be true with children, it is not with adults  Intent to harm: trying to separate accidents with intent of harm with accidents  Teacher/Learner Paradigm: “Buss aggression machine”: have individuals primed to be aggressive or not. Bring individuals into lab and had them play games and messed them up and insulted them during the game to piss them off and make them aggressive. Found that frustr
