2 **Characteristics of Populations**Three vital features of a population are its: geographic distribution density growth rate

3 **Characteristics of Populations**Geographic circulation, or range, explains the area occupied by a population. Population thickness is the number of individuals per unit location. Growth rate is the increase or decrease of the number of individuals in a populace over time.

4 **Population Growth Three components deserve to influence population size:**the number of births the number of deaths the variety of individuals that enter or leave the populace A population can grow once its birthrate is higher than its fatality price.

5 Population Growth Immigration, the movement of individuals into a space, is an additional aspect that have the right to cause a population to grow. Populations ca boost by immigration as animals looking for mates or food arrive from outside.

6 Population Growth Emigration, the movement of individuals out of a space, have the right to cause a populace to decrease in size. Emigration have the right to occur as soon as pets leave to find mates and develop new territories. A shortage of food in one area may also bring about emigration.

7 Exponential Growth Under right conditions through limitless resources, a populace will certainly flourish greatly. Exponential development occurs once the people in a population redevelop at a constant price. The populace becomes bigger and also bigger until it viewpoints an infinitely huge size.

8 **Exponential Growth Exponential Growth**In the presence of infinite resources and also in the absence of predation and condition, a populace will flourish exponentially. Both theoretical graphs show the characteristic J-shape of exponential population growth.

9 Logistic Growth In nature, exponential growth does not proceed in a populace for very long. As sources come to be less easily accessible, the development of a population slows or stops. Logistic expansion occurs once a population"s growth slows or stops following a period of exponential expansion.

10 **Logistic Growth Logistic growth is defined by an S-shaped curve.**This graph mirrors the S-shaped curve of logistic expansion. As resources become much less available, the populace development price slows or stops. The development of this populace has actually leveled off at its transporting capacity.

11 **Logistic Growth Carrying Capacity**The largest number of people of a populace that a offered setting deserve to support is dubbed its transporting capacity. When a population reaches the delivering capacity of its setting, its growth levels off. The average growth rate is zero. This graph mirrors the S-shaped curve of logistic expansion. As resources become less available, the population development rate slows or stops. The expansion of this populace has actually leveled off at its delivering capacity.

12 5-1 Section Assessment List 3 qualities that are supplied to explain a populace. What determinants deserve to adjust a population’s size? What is the difference in between exponential growth and logistic growth? What is supposed by population density? Define moving capacity.
