Video: Population Dynamics

Video: Population Dynamics

This video is from Chapter 4 in the Book “Biology: The Dynamics of Life”. In it, I cover the topic of population dynamics, looking at HOW populations grow, and what how their growth is influenced by various factors. It starts with a comparison of the different types of growth (linear vs. exponential), and then goes into topics like Limiting factors and Carrying capacity. We then talk about different reproductive patterns and predation.

Outline of the lecture:

  • Population Growth
  • Limiting Factors and Carrying Capacity
  • Predation and Competition
