#### Transcript of population dynamics

Exponential growth (J CURVE)
What does unchecked (NO BARRIERS) growth look like
Predators Food availability
A
population
is a
group of
individual organisms of the
same species
(animal; goblin shark, fennec fox, humans..)
that live in an area
, like Asheville. The term "population dynamics" refers to how the number of individuals in a population changes over time.
Population Dynamics: definition
S Curve
Natural Disasters
These are limiting factors that DO NOT depend on how many animals live in a given area.
Carrying capacity: The number of organisms that an environment can support
Do not grow in a Linear way

They experience
exponential
growth
How fast can a population grow?
Disease (Ebola) Territory

Density dependent means it matters how many animals live in the area
floods
Density independent factors:

EQ: what controls how much a population can grow?

drought
wild fires
landslide
Summary (10 points): Explain the difference between density dependent and density independent factors
Identify each as either density dependent or independent and draw the graph (J or S curve that would represent the populations growth pattern if these pressures were present
predators
floods
disease
droughts
predictable: 1+1+1...
not 1+1...
