, the growth of a population slows or stops.
occurs when a population's growth slows or stops following a period of exponential growth.
Carrying Capacity (K)
– the largest number of individuals an environment can support.
Exponential growth in a population slows down or stops as
resources become limited.
rate of immigration increases.
rate of emigration decreases.
birth rate increases.
An S-shaped curve on a graph of population growth is characteristic of
- the movement of individuals into an area.
- the movement of individuals out of an area.
What factors affect population size?
Three important characteristics of a population are its:
Characteristics of Populations
Exponential growth rate means that each new generation of a population
adds the same number of new individuals as the previous generation did.
increases at the same rate as the previous generation.
is the same size as the generation before.
increases by a varying amount.
When the birthrate of a population exceeds its death rate, the population
stays the same.
increases then decreases.
Population density is the number of individuals
that are born each year.
per unit area.
Logistic growth is characterized by an S-shaped curve.
with unlimited resources, a population will grow exponentially.
occurs when the individuals in a population reproduce at a constant rate.
Three factors can affect population size:
number of births
number of deaths
number of individuals that enter or leave the population
A population can grow when its birthrate is greater than its death rate.
