Population Growth and Limiting Factors, and Lab: Modeling Population Growth
Define birth rate, death rate, emigration and immigration. Explain how these affect population growth.
Define the following terms as they relate to population growth: exponential growth, logistic growth,
growth rate, carrying capacity, and doubling time.
Define and give examples of density-dependent and density-independent limiting factors.
Describe the conditions in which populations tend to grow exponentially.
Draw and label an exponential growth curve. Describe the conditions that cause population growth to
Draw and label a logistic growth curve. Describe the conditions that cause population growth to follow
this growth curve pattern.
Draw a predator-prey population pattern.
