Graphical illustration that shows the distribution of various age groups/cohorts, high birth rate, and high mortality rate
Land that can be used for growing crops/food
The limit that a population in an area can reach
When the carrying capacity is reached the resources of the population will not be sustainable. There will be competition and the population will decrease.People will start there will be wars etc. the population will have to decrease due to the lack of space food and water
How does carrying capacity affect population?
Birth control pill/contraception

The birthrate is stable and older people are living longer
The pyramid for the United States is fairly straight up-and-down creating a rectangle shape what does this indicate about the population?
The population will have to compete for resources and population will have to decrease .when their footprint is larger than their bio capacity they are operating at a deficit and they will run out of resources
If a country is using more resources than the biocapacity allows, what will eventually happen?
How much Land it takes to support. Our demand on the earth resources is?
Using more than you have available. 2B8D66EEThis is when our ecological footprint is greater then biocapacity
Using less than is available. This is when our ecological footprint is smaller than our biocapacity
These are the earth's assets. This is earths biological productive land areas that can absorb waste and common emissions.
The ability to continue a determined behavior indefinitely
Ecological sustainability vs ecological sustainability
The rate of renewable resource harvest and non renewal resource depletion. If it cannot be continued indefinitely, then it is not sustainable. If it can be continued indefinitely then it is sustainable.
