What are three limiting factors that can prevent a population from increasing?
- Place where to live, Food, Less predators, Weather
Use an example to explain how a limiting factor can prevent a population from increasing indefinitely?
Increasing population leads to more money spent on welfare and medicare, plus the bigger the population is, the faster it will grow. This leads to tremendous use of resources and, if left unchecked, could destroy all life on earth. Every country has a method of population control to reduce the population of their citizens to prevent this.
One limiting factor of the Boreal Forest (Better known by its Russian name, Taiga) is the extreme cold temperatures. In winter snow can reach heights over five feet! Obviously some species cannot survive in those types of conditions. Another factor is logging. As we all know, logging is common and happens in forests all over the world. Logging decreases the amount of habitat a population has to live in, so it stops population growth. Finally…
Current limiting is what we do to prevent "runaway" current in a circuit. The current limiting component or components act to prevent "overcurrent" in a given situation. There are a number of examples, so let's pick one or two. On the repair bench of a technician, there might be a variable voltage power supply to permit the testing of stuff. Some of these supplies have built in current limiting. The technician can set an appropriate…
A fuse is not in the circuit to prevent overloading of a circuit it is there for current limiting protection. A circuit breaker on the other hand has both function available to it. Over load protection through a thermal trip mechanism and current limiting protection through a magnetic trip mechanism.
Droughts cannot be prevented. Droughts are natural disasters, and there is nothing anyone can do to prevent them. However, their effects can be reduced, by simple measures such as limiting unnecessary water use. Australia has many schemes for minimising the effects of drought, but it cannot prevent them.
Droughts cannot be prevented. Droughts are natural disasters, and there is nothing anyone can do to prevent them. However, their effects can be reduced, by simple measures such as limiting unnecessary water use. This can be done by the following: Saving rain water in a proper way. Planting trees and limiting de-forestation. Protecting underground water resources. Recycling water.
Any species that has a higher birthrate than death rate has an expansion of population. An expanding population means that new individuals have to spread out to find new habitat to prevent overcrowding. When there is nowhere else for them to spread to, they crowd the area until they reach a maximum sustainable population. The mammoth population was probably slowly increasing, and as they traveled to find new places to live they crossed into North…
