characteristics of populations
Characteristic # 1Characteristics of Populations
  • Geographic distribution or range
    • Area inhabited by a population

“The Philippine tarsier (Tarsiussyrichta) is endemic to the southern Philippine islands of Bohol, Samar, Leyte and Mindanao, where it thrives mostly in secondary forests and dense patches or thickets of bush, tall grass and bamboo.”

Characteristic # 2

slide5
Characteristic # 3
  • Population dispersion
    • Patterns of spacing in relation to other members of the population
    • Clumped, uniform, random

Concepts and Connections 2002 by Campbell

slide7
Characteristic # 4
  • Growth rate, r
    • change in the number of individuals in a population per unit time
  • Factors affecting population size:
      • # of births
      • # of deaths
      • # of individuals leaving/entering
        • Immigration = into
        • Emigration = exit

 # of individuals added to/taken from the population

If r = pop’n growth rate

b = birth rate/natality

d = death rate/mortality

i= rate of immigration

e = rate of emigration

Express r in terms of b, d, i, and e.

r = (b+i) – (d+e)

slide8
Characteristic # 4 (con’t)
  • Growth rate, r
    • Exponential growth
      • Individuals in a population reproduce at a constant rate
      • ex. bacterial reproduction: binary fission

slide9
Characteristic # 4 (con’t)
  • Growth rate, r
    • Exponential growth
      • Individuals in a population reproduce at a constant rate
  • Logistic growth
    • Population’s growth slows/stops following a period of exponential growth

slide10
Characteristic # 4 (con’t)
  • Growth rate, r
    • Logistic growth
      • Biotic potential, rmax
        • Max rate at w/c a population could increase under ideal conditions
      • Environmental resistance
        • Unfavorable conditions that prevent a population from reaching its rmax
      • Carrying capacity, K
        • Max # of individuals a given environment could support with its limited resources

factors limiting populations
Factors Limiting Populations
  • Limiting factor- factor that causes population growth to decrease
    • Density-dependent factors
      • Becomes limiting only when population reaches a certain level; mostly biotic factors
    • Density-independent factors
      • Affects all populations in similar ways, regardless of population size; mostly abiotic factors

factors limiting populations1
Factors Limiting Populations
  • Competition
  • Crowding and stress
  • Human disturbances
  • Natural catastrophes
  • Parasitism and disease
  • Predation

human population growth
Human Population Growth
  • Which model of pop’n growth (exp’l vs. logistic) does the human pop’n follow?
    • Human pop’n size has increased through time
  • What factors have controlled human pop’n growth through the centuries?
    • Centralized agriculture
    • Infectious disease
    • Industrial, technological revolutions
    • Modern medicine
