Populations: Limited Factors Project

1) Choose a species of animal or plant. Do not choose a domesticated species. Using the internet, you need to find out the scientific name of that animal .(It should be a Latinized two word name. Ex.) Paramecium aurelia)2)Locate the name of the organism's biome or ecosystem(Ex), tropical rainforest)3)Identify 2 specific limiting factors about your species and describe them. Be sure to include the type of limiting factor (density dependent or independent)4)Identify and describe 2 adaptations or that your species uses to cope with limiting factors. 5) Be sure to record the web site sources of your information6) Include 2 images of your organism.

Limiting factors, both density dependent and density independent are important to the maintenance of a strong and healthy population. Since different species are under unique environmental circumstances, the limiting factors of these populations are also unique. In the following activity, you and your partner will briefly research organisms of your choice, discover some of its limiting factors and learn about some adaptations used to monitor these factors. You will then create a video, a computer generated presentation or any other way that your teacher approves to present your findings to the class.
