Kingdom
Phylum
Class
Order
Family
Genus
Species
Trade offs & Constraints
Conditions for rapid population growth:
All requirements for abiotic and biotic factors in habitat, reduction in predators that feed on pygmy rabbits, ideal climate, and peak mating seasons (March-May)

Population Density Calculation Method:
Quadrat Sampling
Trade offs
Predation risk
Reduction in agricultural conversion areas

Constraints
Time to achieve
Lack of funding
Difficult to breed in captivity
Offspring have low chance of survival in captivity
Abiotic & Biotic requirements
Abiotic:
Water, oxygen, carbon dioxide, nitrogen, sunlight, deep loose soil
Biotic:
Sagebrush, rabbitbrush, greasewood, antelope bitterbrush, gray horsebrush, sulphur flower, grass, forbs, sedges, and prickly phlox,
