through exploitation or direct interference, or it may be apparent competition

Back

renewable resources

Front

resources that are constantly regenerated

Back

intraspecific competition

Front

competitions among individuals of the same species

Back

theory of competition

Front

an extension of logistic growth models

Back

exploitative competition

Front

competition in which individuals consume and drive down the abundance of a resource to a point that individuals cannot persist

Back

interspecific competition

Front

competition among individuals of different species

Back

resource

Front

anything an organism consumes or uses that causes an increase in the growth rate of a population when it becomes more avaiable

Back

zero population growth isocline

Front

population sizes at which a population experiences zero growth

Back

interference competition

Front

when competitors do not immediately consumer resources but defend them

Back

what can alter competition?

Front

abiotic conditions, disturbances, and interactions with other species

Back

Liebig's law of the minimum

Front

law starting that a population increases until the supply of the most limiting resource prevents it from increasing further

Back

competitive exclusion principle

Front

the principle that two species cannot coexist indefinitely when they are both limited by the same resource

Back

apparent competition

Front

when two species have a negative effect on each other through an enemy - including predator, parasite, or herbivore

Back

nonrenewable resources

Front
