A density-dependent factor is a limiting factor that depends on the population size. These factors are only effective when the population reaches a certain density. Examples of density-dependent factors include competition, parasitism, disease and predation.Continue Reading
Density-dependent factors have the greatest effect in large, dense populations. Where an area is overcrowded, for example, competition for food, water and sunlight is much more severe. Competition between species may lead to evolutionary changes over time.
The predator-prey relationship, predation, is one of the most well-known forms of population control.
Limiting factors are those factors that cause the population growth to stop or decrease.Learn more about Data Graphs
To use the Jobst size chart for medical compression stockings, base the size you select on the measurements provided by the chart. A size chart is available on Jobst-USA.com, as of 2015.Full Answer >
8 x 11 is not a standard size of graph paper. Graph paper standards are measured by the dimensions of the grid boxes, not by the overall size of the paper they are printed on and the boxes are always identical in length and width.Full Answer >
Some factors that encourage the equilibrium of the Hardy-Weinberg equation are a large population size, lack of migration, truly random mating and a lack of selective forces that encourage or hinder specific phenotypes. The Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium is an expression of the ideal distribution of phenotypes within a population given the assumption that the gene frequencies are already known.Full Answer >
The J curve represents population growth with no restrictions, while the S curve represents population growth with a restricting factor. Exponential and logistical are the two modes of measuring population growth.Full Answer >
