decreasing / steady- -]. --Question 10. Describe the effect of the lowered _ carrying capacity (Kahn Academy, n.d.) _ [use the same term as in questions 7 and 8 above] on the growth of the dolphin population. Is the population likely to be increasing, decreasing or steady? Why?-- The lowered carrying capacity will cause a decrease in the dolphin population. Like the dolphins, their food source will also experience fatal contact with the oil, and their own food source will also diminish.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
