A type of interspecific interaction that benefits one species out of the two
Affected by when reproduction begins, how often the organism reproduces, and how many offspring are reproduced each time
A demographic transition does not affect the fact that a population is at
The ________period is a limited phase in an individual animal’s development when learning of particular behaviors can take place.
When insects lay eggs in the body of a living host, and the larvae kill the host. –
This is a type of mimicry that harmless animals display in order to appear dangerous or poisonous.

Two species with similar needs for the same limiting resources cannot coexist in the same place-
This describes a mode of reproduction in which an organism produces a lot of offspring, then dies
In this survivorship curve, many organisms are born, but many die quickly
In stable areas where offspring usually survive, this kind of reproduction is favored
Ecological _________ is a transition in species composition over time. This is most noticeable when a flood or fire occurs –
In this kind of population, birth and death rates are relatively constant with respect to the number of individuals
The process of substantial but reversible changes that shift and organism’s tolerance curve in the direction of the environmental change-
In density-dependent populations, as the population density rises, the death rate
Bacteria living on an agar plate are representative of this kind of population regulation
In an experiment, the birthrate of female seed beetles is manipulated by denying them access to males. When this happens, the birthrate decreases and the longevity of the female beetles _________
