Please help me answer this question for my ecology class.
Consider the following three populations. Population A has a type1 survivorship curve, population B has a type2 survivorship curve, and population C has a type3 survivorship curve. All else being equal, which population would have the lowest "fitness"? Explain your answer

Be sure you understand what "fitness" means.

Well, a lot of the population of type 3 die very quickly. I guess I would have to have you explain "fitness", but my understanding, I would say type 3 is least fit.
