  • Question What would cause a population to
    decrease?
  • Increase in growth rate
  • No limiting factors
  • Less predation
  • Competition from another species

Check Your Answer
6
Ecology for 500
Answer D. Competition from another
species Reason Competition will cause a

  • Question When pesticides enter a food chain as
    they move up the food chain concentrations of the
    pesticide INCREASE due to
