Project: Carrying Capacity. In 1906, the US Forest Service began protecting a herd of deer on a 300,000 hectare range on Arizona’s Kaibab Plateau. In previous years the Kaibab forest area had been overgrazed by cattle, sheep and horses. Graph the Forest Service’s data on the size of the herd over time, and indicate the carrying capacity on your graph. Based on an analysis of your graph describe
a) the relationship of the deer herd to the carrying capacity,
b) the effects on the herd of various actions taken by the Forest Service from 1907-1920, c) the lessons-learned by the U.S. Forest Service between 1905-1939.
