In the real world, many factors determine the number of orgnisms in any one population. Yet, a "superfly" with unlimited food and no mortality would show what type of growth?
In cases of exponential growth rates, a population ___________ each year.
Is multiplied by a constant number
Carrying capacity is the population or biomass
Of a species that an enviroment can support on a long-term basis
In the real world, population explosion is usually followed by
A population crash

An island has formed off the coast of the Pacific northwest. The Department of natural Resources (DNR) has determined that there is enough land area for a herd of 100 elk, yet they say the carrying capacity is only 60 elk. This inequality can best be explained by the fact that the
Physical factor of space is only one of the determiners for population size in a community
