Limiting factors and models of population growth (1 of 2)

Unit 4: Populations
Lesson 2 of 16

Objective: Students will be able to 1) categorize factors that limit population growth as density-dependent or density-independent; 2) define carrying capacity; and 3) accurately predict how density-dependent factors will limit the growth of populations.

Big Idea: Factors that affect population size can be density-dependent or density- independent. How might we use modeling to understand the impact of each type of factor on population growth?
