Week 6: Cat Graphs
Hey all, and welcome back to my blog.
In running last week’s calculations of NYC’s feral cat population, I found that the population generationally increases by 5.9194344%. Image 1 shows the feral cat population, without human intervention, starting with the three common estimates of its size in New York City, from now until 2050 (one generation = 8.1355 months).
This week, I’ve been starting this mathematical section of my whitepaper, and plan to finish it by the end of the week. In addition, I’ve started on the transitions between the three sections of its body.
I plan to visit Dr. Cuonzo’s farm on Saturday, May 13th, and once more again before the end of the research period. I’ll be asking more about urban biodiversity loss, and both artificial and natural ways to combat it. She has planned to show me the 26-acre forest area of the farm for the first time, and I’m counting on being surprised about what I’ll learn there for my project.
I’m very optimistic about this week’s progress, and the amount of research that I’ve done so far. I’m also very happy that I’ve come up with a graph of the feral cat populations in such a timely manner. I’ll begin to narrow my focus on the public perception and bee aspects of my project. Thanks for reading!
