Name: Date: School: Facilitator: 2.1 Population Growth Directions: Read the following information below. Use the information below, as well as what you learned in the lesson content to complete the table and answer the questions about population growth. Exponential population growth cannot continue forever, since all organisms require resources to grow and reproduce, and the environment where a population is growing has a limited supply of resources (e.g. a limited supply of food or water). As a population gets larger, there is increasing competition for resources. This results in decreased reproduction and/or increased mortality, so the rate of population growth slows down. Eventually, the population will reach a maximum size which is called the carrying capacity of the environment; the carrying capacity depends on the amount of resources available in the environment. The second figure illustrates this type of logistic population growth with a carrying capacity = K.
