1 Population Dynamics, Carrying Capacity, and Conservation Biology G. Tyler Miller’s Living in the Environment 13 th Edition Chapter 9 G. Tyler Miller’s Living in the Environment 13 th Edition Chapter 9 Dr. Richard Clements Chattanooga State Technical Community College Dr. Richard Clements Chattanooga State Technical Community College

2 Key Concepts  Factors affecting population size  Species reproductive patterns  Species survivorship patterns  Conservation biology and human impacts on ecosystems

3 Population Dynamics and Carrying Capacity  Population dynamics  Zero population growth (ZPG)  Biotic potential (intrinsic rat of increase [r])  Environmental resistance  Carrying capacity  Minimum viable population (MVP)

4 Population Dispersion Fig. 9-2 p. 191

5 Factors Affecting Population Size Fig. 9-3 p. 192

6 Exponential and Logistic Growth Fig. 9-4 p. 192 Fig. 9-6 p. 193 Fig. 9-5 p. 193

7 Population Density Effects  Density-independent controls  Density-dependent controls

8 Natural Population Curves Fig. 9-7 p. 194

9 The Role of Predation in Controlling Population Size  Predator-prey cycles  Top-down control  Bottom-up control Fig. 9-8 p. 195

10 Reproductive Patterns and Survival  Asexual reproduction  Sexual reproduction  r-selected species  K-selected species Fig p. 196

11 Survivorship Curves Fig p. 198

12 Conservation Biology: Sustaining Wildlife Populations  Investigate human impacts on biodiversity  Ideas for maintaining biodiversity  Endangered species management  Wildlife reserves and ecological restoration  Ecological economics  Environmental ethics  Wildlife management

13 Human Impacts on Ecosystems  Habitat degradation and fragmentation  Ecosystem simplification  Genetic resistance  Predator elimination  Introduction of non-native species  Overharvesting renewable resources  Interference with ecological systems

14 Learning from Nature  Interdependence  Diversity  Resilience  Adaptability  Unpredictability  Limits See Connections p. 200
