IELTS Academic Reading Sample 1 - Population Viability Analysis

You should spend about 20 minutes on Questions 28-39 which are based on Reading Passage 1 below:

Population Viability Analysis

Part A
To make political decisions about the extent and type of forestry in a region it is important to understand the consequences of those decisions. One tool for assessing the impact of forestry on the ecosystem is population viability analysis (PVA). This is a tool for predicting the probability that a species will become extinct in a particular region over a specific period. It has been successfully used in the United States to provide input into resource exploitation decisions and assist wildlife managers and there is now enormous potential for using population viability to assist wildlife management in Australia’s forests. A species becomes extinct when the last individual dies. This observation is a useful starting point for any discussion of extinction as it highlights the role of luck and chance in the extinction process. To make a prediction about extinction we need to understand the processes that can contribute to it and these fall into four broad categories which are discussed below.

Part B
     A)   Early attempts to predict population viability were based on demographic uncertainty whether an individual survives from one year to the next will largely be a matter of chance. Some pairs may produce several young in a single year while others may produce none in that same year. Small populations will fluctuate enormously because of the random nature of birth and death and these chance fluctuations can cause species extinctions even if, on average, the population size should increase. Taking only this uncertainty of ability to reproduce into account, extinction is unlikely if the number of individuals in a population is above about 50 and the population is growing.

     B)   Small populations cannot avoid a certain amount of inbreeding. This is particularly true if there is a very small number of one sex. For example, if there are only 20 individuals of a species and only one is a male, all future individuals in the species must be descended from that one male. For most animal species such individuals are less likely to survive and reproduce. Inbreeding increases the chance of extinction.

     C)   Variation within a species is the raw material upon which natural selection acts. Without genetic variability, a species lacks the capacity to evolve and cannot adapt to changes in its environment or to new predators and new diseases. The loss of genetic diversity associated with reductions in population size will contribute to the likelihood of extinction.

    D)   Recent research has shown that other factors need to be considered. Australia’s environment fluctuates enormously from year to year. These fluctuations add yet another degree of uncertainty to the survival of many species. Catastrophes such as fire, flood, drought or epidemic may reduce population sizes to a small fraction of their average level. When allowance is made for these two additional elements of uncertainty the population size necessary to be confident of persistence for a few hundred years may increase to several thousand.

Part C
Besides these processes, we need to bear in mind the distribution of a population. A species that occurs in five isolated places each containing 20 individuals will not have the same probability of extinction as a species with a single population of 100 individuals in a single locality. Where logging occurs (that is, the cutting down of forests for timber) forest-dependent creatures in that area will be forced to leave. Ground-dwelling herbivores may return within a decade. However, arboreal marsupials (that is animals which live in trees) may not recover to pre-logging densities for over a century. As more forests are logged, animal population sizes will be reduced further. Regardless of the theory or model that we choose, a reduction in population size decreases the genetic diversity of a population and increases the probability of extinction because of any or all of the processes listed above. It is therefore, a scientific fact that increasing the area that is loaded in any region will increase the probability that forest-dependent animals will become extinct.

Questions 28-31:
Do the following statements agree with the views of the writer in Part A of Reading Passage 1? In boxes 28-31 on your answer sheet write:

YES                if the statement agrees with the writer
NO                  if the statement contradicts the writer
NOT GIVEN    if it is impossible to say what the writer thinks about this

Example                                                                                               Answer

A link exists between the consequences of decisions and
the decision making process itself.                                                            YES

28.     Scientists are interested in the effect of forestry on native animals.
29.     PVA has been used in Australia for many years.
30.     A species is said to be extinct when only one individual exists.
31.     Extinction is a naturally occurring phenomenon. 

Questions 32-35:
These questions are based on Part B of Reading Passage 1. In paragraphs A to D the author describes four processes which may contribute to the extinction of a species. Match the list of processes (i-vi) to the paragraphs. Write the appropriate number (i-vi) in boxes 32-35 on your answer sheet.

NB. There are more processes than paragraphs so you will not use all of them.

32.   Paragraph A

33.   Paragraph B

34.   Paragraph C

35.   Paragraph D

Processes
i   Loss of ability to adapt
ii   Natural disasters
iii   An imbalance of the sexes
iv   Human disasters
v   Evolution
vi  The haphazard nature of reproduction

Questions 36-38:
Based on your reading of Part C, complete the sentences below with words taken from the passage. Use NO MORE THAN THREE WORDS for each answer. Write your answers in boxes 36-38 on your answer sheet.

While the population of a species may be on the increase, there is always a chance that small isolated groups .......... (36) .......... Survival of a species depends on a balance between the size of a population and its .......... (37) ......... The likelihood that animals which live in forests will become extinct is increased when ..........  (38) ...........

Question 39:
Choose the appropriate letter A-D and write it in box 39 on your answer sheet.

39.  An alternative heading for the passage could be:
     A.    The protection of native flora and fauna
     B.    Influential factors in assessing survival probability
     C.    An economic rationale for the logging of forests
     D.    Preventive measures for the extinction of a species

Keywords to find the answer:
28. effect of= impact of, native animals=ecosystem
29. "now enormous potential" deny "many years"
30. "the last individual dies" deny "one individual exists"
31. the rest of paragraph just mention extinction process of luck and chances, not mention about phenomena.

32 reproduce= reproduction, uncertainly= haphazard
33. A small number of one sex
34. the loss of genetic diversity
35. catastrophes= disaster, fire, flood... are nature

36 to 38 is a bit difficult, it requests to read through the whole paragraph because the answer is disordered from the article. If the questions start from 39, 38, 37, then, it is easier.

I spent 17 minutes on this reading, I don't get used to reading by computer yet, I use to read from books as I could mark the keyword. I did 2 faults, 28 and 36,

In 28, I didn't tackle the right answer because I was focused on finding any word relates to SCIENTIST ARE INTERESTED IN. I didn't find any words embody "SCIENTIST" and their "interested". Even in the later part, I could not find the words to match. But the subject of the question couldn't be found. So I don't know this questions is exactly right or wrong or should be NOT GIVEN.

In 36, I was too focus on finding the answer as an order. I spent too much time on studying the first 2 sentence of Part C, but I didn't find and verb to finish the sentence. And I have never expected the answer to be found at the start from the end back to the beginning... That means, my grammatical range is not strong enough, and every kind of questions could be found in IELTS exam.

The answer to Q. #28 should be not Given. Yes it says "One tool for assessing the impact of forestry on the ecosystem is population viability analysis (PVA). This is a tool for predicting the probability that a species will become extinct in a particular region... "but in this statement ... "Scientists" were never mentioned that they were the ones who are interested. It just said things about PVA.. How come the answer is YES?

The correct answer is "Yes" because the keyword effect and forestry has been used in the passage and this tool is eventually used by the scientists.

36-38 is the summary of part 'C'. Read part C and try to understand. But you have to catch the key words of questions 36, 37 & 38.

Why don't you put any comma in the reading passage? We are learners and don't want to learn bad habits. However, thanks for updating.

Hi, I have started studying IELTS from one month. I found this website just three days ago. I want to say that this will help me get a high band score in IELTS. Can you explain the answers to the questions 36 to 38? I could not find the answers on that page. Where can I find the answer? It may be in the whole page or I have to think?

Can anyone please explain to me, why in the world question 28 is 'YES'? There is nowhere in Part A stating that! So why? It must be 'Not Given'. And would the answer 'forests are logged' be acceptable for question 38, instead of presented answer in the key?

To answer questions 36 to 38 we require taking words from the reading passage (part C), but I do not see exactly many phrase words in your answers. Can you please explain this for me?

Hey. It's confusing that the answer words given to 36, 37 & 38 are not included in the passage. Is that acceptable to use words that are not included in the passage but have the same meaning? Thank you.

Hi, I did not understand how answers were chosen for questions 28 to 31!!!! For an example, for the question 1, the answer was given 'yes'. Can anyone tell me where it is written exactly in the reading passage? Seriously I doubt the answers are right if I follow the passage. Sorry, everyone.

In true/false type questions you deal with the fact while in yes-no type questions you deal with the opinion of the narrator and not the exact fact. So check out the last line of this passage which depicts a scientific fact.

There is an enormous potential for using population viability to assist wildlife management in Australia’s forests. I think that's what they mean by interest.
