  1. 1. Population GrowthBiotic Potential=-promotes positive growth-intrinsic factors(litter size, gestation)Environmental Resistance=-limits growth-extrinsic factor(weather, food supply)
  2. 2. Patterns of growthExponential growth (J shaped curve)• biotic potential(rm)=maximum value
  3. 3. Logistic growth (S shaped)K=carrying capacity=population size that isbased on number of resources available
  4. 4. Limiting factors:Density dependent:-competition-disease-predation-foodDensity independent:-weather-catastrophes
  5. 5. Natural Selection:• limiting factors placestresses on a population• the best adapted organismswill survive and get toreproduce and pass on theirgenes with the adaptationto their offspring• over long periods of timethis can lead to a change inspecies

  12. 12. Survivorship curves:-based on a cohort of individuals from birth untildeath-cohort=a group of individuals of the same age-survivorship curves are meant to show thenumber of individuals surviving at each agefor a particular species-three types of curves
  13. 13. Type 1=good early survival, die of old age, lowbirth rates, provide lots of parental care(humans)Type 2=die at constant rate regardless of age(birds, lizards)Type3 =poor early survival,survival thatimproves withage, lots of offspring, lowparental care(fish,plants)
  14. 14. Life History Patterns:r selected species: species inhabiting fluctuatingor unpredictable environments-environmentskeep populations below carrying capacity (lotsof predation, competition over resources)k selected species-species inhabiting stable,predictable environments-keep populationsize near carrying capacity and resources arescarce
