1.       Why does population growth rate slow and then stop, creating a plateau in the curve as a response to the carrying capacity?

Mar 22nd, 2015

As population size increases and resources become more limited,  intro-specific competition occurs. Therefore, individuals within a population who are more or less well adapted for the environment compete for survival. The carrying capacity acts as a moderating force in the growth rate by slowing it when resources become limited and stopping growth once it has been reached. The carrying capacity of a particular environment is the maximum population size that it can support.

As population size matures and the resources among the people become more limited, it is true to say that competition emerges between the individuals. Therefore, individuals in the population compete for survival in the environment.  Comparing the performance of a big population, it is true to say that the carrying capacity acts as a moderating force in the growth rate by slowing it when resources become limited and stopping growth once it has been reached. The maximum population size that can be supported by a particular environment is what is called as a carrying capacity.

thank you
