What would happen to the number of rabbits and grass plants if the number of foxes:

(a) Increased

(b) Decreased

Answer :

a) If the fox population increased, the number of rabbits will decrease because more foxes will feed on rabbits thus decreasing the population of rabbits and as a result of decrease in number of rabbits, the grass plants will increase as there will be few rabbits to feed on grass.

b) If the number of foxes decreased, the number of rabbits will increase as there will be few foxes to feed on rabbits and hence it will increase the population of rabbits. When the population of rabbits will increase there will be a decrease in population of grass plants, as more and more rabbits will eat grasses so there will be a decline in grass plants.
