The Human Population Figure 1. Human population growth since AD is exponential. Concepts of animal population dynamics can be applied to human population growth. Humans are not unique in their ability to alter their environment. For example, beaver dams alter the stream environment where they are : Matthew R. Fisher. Long-Term Consequences of Exponential Human Population Growth. Many dire predictions have been made about the world’s population leading to a major crisis called the “population explosion.” In the book The Population Bomb, biologist Dr. Paul R. Ehrlich wrote, “The battle to feed all of humanity is over. In the s hundreds of. Population biology has been investigated quantitatively for many decades, resulting in a rich body of scientific literature. Ecologists often avoid this literature, put off by its apparently formidable mathematics. This textbook provides an introduction to the biology and ecology of populations by. A consequence of exponential human population growth is the time that it takes to add a particular number of humans to the Earth is becoming shorter.

Population Growth and Regulation Population ecologists make use of a variety of methods to model population dynamics. An accurate model should be able to describe the changes occurring in a population and predict future changes. Malthus published his book in stating that populations with abundant natural Author: Matthew R. Fisher.   Plotting the growth of a population from an initial growth realization factor of 1 to a final factor of 0 produces a curve like this, called the logistic growth curve or S-shaped curve of growth. Although actual populations are unlikely to follow the theoretical logistic growth curve exactly, the curve can provide us with valuable guidance in.

It gave a huge jolt to the nascent environmental movement and fueled an anti-population-growth crusade that led to human rights abuses around the world. University’s biology department, and. If population density is high, such factors become increasingly limiting on the success of the population. For example, if individuals are cramped in a small area, the disease may spread faster than it would if population density were low. Factors that are affected by population density are referred to as density-dependent : Laura Klappenbach. Book: Environmental Biology (Fisher) The logistic model of population growth, while valid in many natural populations and a useful model, is a simplification of real-world population dynamics. leading to adaptations that affect population growth. Population ecologists have described a continuum of life-history “strategies” with K. Rate this book. Clear rating. 1 of 5 stars 2 of 5 stars 3 of 5 stars 4 of 5 stars 5 of 5 stars.
