My Hypothesis was that I thought that the chipmunk population would increase but I don’t think it will. It looks like the population is taking a rocky and fast drop down. I assumed this because in the last few years there was a rise in the number of nut bearing trees, therefore increasing the population. But when I looked at my graph that didn’t look right.
I think I discovered a lot more about wildlife, the more advanced part of wildlife. The invisible forces that tie the population together. I don’t know if that’s right how im saying it. The rodent graph I made probably spoke for all the small animals in New England. I think a lot of animals wont have trouble finding nuts but will have problems with the heat.
Next year I predict that the population will be so low that the chipmunks around Rye might disappear, that’s just a prediction. A very random prediction for the people who are reading this.This was a learning experience and i learned a little bit about the mathematical part of nature.
Im disappointed that people haven’t collected better cencus counts of animals over the years and that all I had was this data. I cant rely on this that much because this data wasn’t collected by trained experts but by average people who aren’t trained to identify, spot, and distinguish animals over other animals. And also what about the other animals? What if it turns out that the small amount of dead animals that were found in 2005 werent because of the heat and animals just migrating because of a higher amount of predators. There is not enough data to accurately place a conclusion. I don’t understand enough to know why this would be useful. Sure I know that it could help to understand the population of the animals, it could help to understand why animals are leaving their habitat. But It could. That’s the fatal flaw. Its not the reservation where all the animals are grouped, tagged, and put in a large cage. It’s the wild, and until then we may have conclusions but we will never know the true meaning of the planet, why Artic Comorants migrate half way across the world troubles me as much as whats happening to the chipmunk population. Even if you separate two sea turtle eggs, thousands of miles away from each other, they will hatch exactly at the same time, why? Technology will never explain everything. Try to tell the world that the missing link is an ape, an ape. Think of that… Compared to humans. We are the people who are trying to understand the meaning of life. Can an ape do that? How do you come up with the answer that an ape is the answer to everything? Everything seems in place? It isn’t in place just as the graph up above doesn’t explain anything. NEVER MAKE A CONCLUSION WITHOUT SUPPORTING EVIDINCE.
That’s what I have learned.
