According to the concept of species area relations:

(1) The number of species in an area increases with the size of the area

(2) Larger species require larger habitat areas than do smaller species

(3) Most species within any given area are endemic

(4) The larger the area, the greater the extinction rate

The great German naturalist and geographer Alexander von Humboldt observed that within a region species richness increased with increasing explored area, but only up to a limit. In fact, relation between species richness and area for a wide variety of taxa (angiosperm plants, birds, bats, freshwater fishes) turns out to be a rectangular hyperbola. Now find out correct equations shown in the graph:

1. I - S = CAZ; II - Log S = log C + Z log A

2. I - Log S = log C + Z log A; II - S = CAZ

3. I - S = CAZ + log C; II - Log S = log C + Z log A

4. I - S = CAZ + log A; II - Log S = log C + Z log A
