Product Description
This document starts as multiple homework assignments for a unit on population ecology, but ends up being a completed study guide for the unit test. The key to success in teaching a unit on population ecology is to provide good instruction followed by a good review exercise.

This document is an 8 page student study guide consisting of 72 questions. As I am teaching my unit on population ecology, I assign a portion of these questions for homework each night. This document provides quality homework assignments and ends up being a completed and thorough study guide for the unit test.

This worksheet of homework questions and problems was written to go along with my Powerpoint on this same topic: Population Ecology PowerPoint and Notes. Click this link to view the PowerPoint.

Topics covered in this lesson are:
• Characteristics of Populations: Definition of population, population size, geographic distribution, density, dispersion, growth rate, and age structure.
• Types of Dispersion: Clumped, even, and random, definitions and examples are given.
• Population Dynamics: Birth rate, death rate, life expectancy, age structure.
• Patterns of mortality: Survivorship Curves, the three types are defined and explained, examples given.
• Life Histories: Big-bang reproduction and repeated reproduction
• Population Growth: Growth rate, factors that determine the size of a population, migration, density, exponential growth, carrying capacity, limits to population growth, graphs of different types of population growth, logistic growth, assumptions of the exponential model and the logistic model.
• Carrying capacity and Logistic growth.
• Limits to Growth: Limiting factors, examples of limiting factors, density-dependent factors, competition, predation, parasitism, disease, territoriality, density independent factors.
• Human Population Growth: The history of human population growth, current human population growth, demographic transition, age-structure diagrams.


All answers are included in the very detailed 6 page teacher guide that is included with this product.

The questions are of varying difficulty levels. Question types include compare and contrast, fill in the blank, short answer, multiple choice, calculations, and true/false. Some of the questions are basic and concrete in nature, but most of the questions involve critical thinking and problem solving skills.

Your download will include both a Word document as well as a pdf of this extensive homework/study guide.

This study guide is appropriate for any biology or life science class with students in grades 7 - 12.
