How many animals become extinct every minute?
No-one will be drawn on actual figures, and what figures are available tend to speak of species, not just animals. Current estimates suggest that species are becoming extinct at 100 to 1000 times faster than would normally happen as part of natural evolution and changes on the planet. Estimates of around 1000 species a week becoming extinct are common but this is only an estimate as it has long been appreciated that many species have and will become extinct before they are even known to science, especially insects.

How does competition for resources limit the sizes of population within a habitat?
If there is competition, it can be assumed that there are limited resources. Hypothetically if we have 100 resources and 500 animals, and each animal needs at least 1 resource to survive, clearly not all animals will survive and at the most, 100 animals may survive, greatly limiting the population from 500 to 100. Taking into account other species who may be better competitors for winning resources, weaker species will eventually die out. If species B relies on species A for food, and species A becomes too little or dies out, species B will also die out.
