Aim: How do we recogniize how unfavorable abiotic and biotic factors affect a species?

Do now:Define the word population:

VOCABULARY: limiting factors ,carrying capacity

population
POPULATION
  • · A population is a group of individual plants or animals living in one area.
limiting factor
LIMITING FACTOR
  • A limiting factor is something that limits how large a plant or animal’s population can become by its absence.
  • A limiting factor usually provides a “ceiling” (or highest number) that a population cannot rise above. Any component of habitat can become a limiting factor.
carrying capacity
Carrying capacity
  • The carrying capacity is the number of plants or animals that a given habitat can support indefinitely.
carrying capacity1
CARRYING CAPACITY
  • The quality and the quantity of habitat determine the carrying capacity of a habitat at a given time.
  • If a habitat has a large supply of low quality food for a particular animal, a large amount of land may still be required to support even a small population of that animal.

In addition, individual animals within a population have different needs. Some animals may be injured or have young to support, increasing the amount of habitat necessary to meet their needs.

conclusion
Conclusion:
  • Review with the students the definitions of the four vocabulary words, and the four components of habitat.

Ask the students to describe populations in nature.

  • Ask the students to describe how limiting factors, predation and natural or human caused disturbances can combine to determine the carrying capacity of a population in a particular environment.

CONCLUSION
  • Ask what effect the quality of habitat has on the survival of individuals within an ecosystem.
