1Population DynamicsSC.912.L.17.5 Analyze how population size is determined by births, deaths, immigration, emigration, and limiting factors (biotic and abiotic) that determine carrying capacity.Source:
2What do I need to know?how population size is determined by births, deaths, immigration, emigration and limiting factorsuse data about population dynamics, abiotic factors, and biotic factors to explain a change in carrying capacity and population size in an ecosystemthat different types of organisms exist within aquatic systems due to chemistry, geography, light, depth, salinity, and/or temperaturethe potential changes in an ecosystem resulting from seasonal variations, climate changes and/or successionthe positive or negative consequences that result from a reduction in biodiversity
3Population Size the size of a population is always changing four factors affect sizeimmigrationbirthsemigrationdeaths
4Population Growth: Based on Available Resources Exponential Growth rapid population increase due to an abundance of resourcesLogistic Growth population facing limited resources
6Limiting Factors Explain the biological carrying capacity? Video Guiding Questions:Explain the biological carrying capacity?What variables (limiting factors) affect the carrying capacity of a population?How can biologists manage a population such as sturgeon?
7Carrying Capacitythe maximum number of individuals in a population that the environment can support
8Aquatic Systems factors affecting organism distribution geography lightdepthsalinitytemperatureSource:
9Ecological Relationships Competition, Predation & Symbiosis Video Guiding Questions:Define competition, predation and symbiosis.Explain the ecological niche (role) of organisms.
12Loss of Biodiversity Define biodiversity. Describe the web of life. Video Guiding Questions:Define biodiversity.Describe the web of life.How do human activities cause a loss of biodiversity?
13Show What You KnowThe number of pythons found throughout Everglades National Park has increased in recent years. These huge snakes are not native to Florida and are believed to have been released into the wild by pet owners. Wildlife biologists have initiated attempts to capture and remove these pythons. Which statement best explains the biologists’ reason for removing these pythons from the Everglades? A. The pythons could upset the territorial boundaries of native organisms. B. The pythons could adapt to overcome diseases common to native snakes. C. The pythons could prey on native organisms and cause native populations to decline. D. The pythons could begin to interbreed with native snakes and produce a more successful species.
14Show What You KnowThe graph below shows a population of pigeons living in a neighborhood over a ten-year period.Which of the following statements account for the change in population seen between years 7 and 8?The birth rate of the pigeons increased.The emigration rate of the pigeons decreased.The death rate of the pigeons exceeded the birth rate.The neighborhood reached its carrying capacity for the pigeon population
15Show What You KnowA new species of snake was introduced to a tropical region. Scientists then noticed a steady decline in the presence of field mice and an increase in the number of snakes. Which of these is the most likely explanation about why the population size of each animal changed?The snakes introduced to the region dominated the habitat, forcing the mice to find another place to live.The mice became prey to the introduced snakes, allowing the snake population to increase but decreasing the mice population.The snakes introduced to the region competed with the mice for food, allowing the snake population to increase but decreasing the mice population.The people in the surrounding area set traps that killed the mice, allowing the snakes to live without any predators and therefore to increase in number.
16Show What You KnowThe highest concentration of life exists in the top 200 meters of ocean water. What is the most important factor that influences the concentration of life?amount of gases at the surfaceamount of nutrients in the waterlarge number of predators at lower depthsamount of sunlight
17Show What You KnowRabbits introduced into Australia over 100 years ago have become a serious pest to farmers. Rabbit populations increases so much that they displaced many native species of plant eaters. What is the most logical explanation for their increased numbers?Rabbits have a high death rate.There are few effective predators.Additional rabbit species have been introduced.There is an increase in rabbit competitors.
18Show What You KnowScientists found, that over a period of 200 years, a mountain pond was transformed into a meadow. During that time, several communities of organisms were replaced by different communities. Which of these best explains why new communities were able to replace older communities?The original species became extinct.Species in the older community died from old age.The abiotic characteristics of the habitat changed.Diseases that killed the older organisms disappeared.
