2. Explain the primary concern over exponential population growth. What promotes exponential population growth? What constrains exponential population growth?
The primary concern over exponential population growth is consisted of the balance between human needs and resources toward meeting those needs now and for the future. Exponential population growth is also promoted by the continuous birth rate over the years, and is constrained alone by the birth rates.
3. What is carrying capacity? Compare predictions for human population growth in developed countries versus developing countries. What will occur if carrying capacity is exceeded?
Carrying capacity is the total number of organisms within given species for which they become sufficient resources to produce and survive. Many developing countries have poor access to birth control, and practice of religions which prohibits birth control and value enormous families. So with that being sad if carrying capacity was exceeded warfare might occur.
4. How do individual choices affect natural ecosystem? Provide examples from your personal or community experience.
Individual human’s today choices and population have a greater impact on ecosystems other than populations of other living things. Our choices (Humans) of activities can help change ecosystems to the point where their health becomes often threatened.
