Carrying Capacity and Population Biology Carrying Capacity: the Earth’s “maximum load”, can not be determined as one fixed number. The determination factor of capacity is the environment. The carrying capacity depends on food, habitat, water, and other necessities available in the environment. Population Biology: the study of populations of organisms and the regulation of population size In the field of population biology, scientists use evolution, ecology, systematics, genetics, mathematics, and statistics to figure out the interactions of humans and the environment.
