Student Population Objectives




Student Objectives

Students will be able to describe population dynamics, including the following:
  • models that describe the growth of populations (e.g. r- and k-selection).
  • regulation of population size by abiotic factors (e.g. niche availability, pollution),
  • regulation of population size by biotic factors (e.g. food availability, predation),
  • local population extinction due to habitat destruction, pollution, non-native species, etc.
