MCQ

Observe the graph and select the correct option.

Options

  • Line A represents, S = CA2

  • Line B represents, log C = log A + Z log S

  • Line A represents, S = CAZ

  • Line B represents, log S = log Z + C log A

Solution

Line A represents, S = CAZ

Explanation:

The equation S = CAZ often gives the species-area relationship, where S is the number of species,  A is the area, and C and Z are constants. The relationship is typically nonlinear.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
