F: Human activities impact ecosystems on local, regional and global scales.
1: As human populations have increased in numbers, their impact on habitats for species have been magnified.
2. In turn, this has often reduced the population size of the effected species and resulted in habitat destruction and, in some cases, the extinction of species.
EK 4.A.5: Communities are composed of populations of organisms that interact in complex ways.
C: Mathematical or computer models are used to illustrate population growth paterns and interactions.
2. A population can produce a density of individuals that exceeds the system's resource availability.
4. Demographic data with respect to age distribution and fecundity can be used to study human population.
