14 Lessons in Chapter 19: AP Science Homework Help: Population & the Environment
The Human Population: Factors that Affect Population Size

1. The Human Population: Factors that Affect Population Size

The human population is constantly changing. In this lesson, we will explore the factors that cause increases and decreases in the human population, including births, deaths, immigration, and emigration.

Biotic Potential and Carrying Capacity of a Population

2. Biotic Potential and Carrying Capacity of a Population

When you look around, you can see a number of different individuals and species. In this lesson, we will explore the factors that control and define how many organisms can really inhabit a particular ecosystem or habitat.

The History of Human Population Growth and Carrying Capacity

3. The History of Human Population Growth and Carrying Capacity

Most of us are used to the current size of the human population but it was not always this large. In this lesson, we will explore the history of human population growth and the future of its growth.

Thomas Malthus' Theory of Human Population Growth

4. Thomas Malthus' Theory of Human Population Growth

In this lesson, we will explore the ideas of Thomas Malthus and his predictions for the growth of the human population. We will also investigate if his predictions have come true or not.

Economic Inequality: Differences in Developed and Developing Nations

5. Economic Inequality: Differences in Developed and Developing Nations

Not everyone has the same house, the same car, or makes the same amount of money. In this lesson, we will explore the concept of economic inequality and investigate what characteristics make a nation developed or developing.

Poverty, Carrying Capacity, Population Growth & Sustainability

6. Poverty, Carrying Capacity, Population Growth & Sustainability

Worldwide poverty is a large issue. In this lesson, we will explore how poverty influences population growth rates and how these things relate to carrying capacity and global sustainability.

What Is Demographic Transition? - Definition & Stages

7. What Is Demographic Transition? - Definition & Stages

There are many differences between non-industrial and industrial countries. In this lesson, we will explore the concept of demographic transition and the stages that guide a country through its changes into an industrial country.

Population Characteristics of Highly Developed & Developing Countries

8. Population Characteristics of Highly Developed & Developing Countries

The population of a country is based on many factors. In this lesson, we will explore several important factors that differ between developed and developing countries.

Population Distribution: Rural vs. Urban Areas

9. Population Distribution: Rural vs. Urban Areas

The distribution of people varies depending in the type of location. In this lesson, we will explore how people are distributed between rural and urban areas and how these populations have changed over time.

Population Size: Impacts on Resource Consumption

10. Population Size: Impacts on Resource Consumption

What are the things you need to survive? Humans all need resources, and in this lesson, we will discuss how the growth of the human population is influencing the natural resources we rely on.

Urban Population Growth and Compact Development

11. Urban Population Growth and Compact Development

The population growth rates in urban areas are on the rise, and as more people move to cities, there are many problems that can occur. We will discuss several issues associated with this growth and also a potential method for minimizing the effects.

Overpopulation vs. Overconsumption

12. Overpopulation vs. Overconsumption

How many people can the Earth support? In this lesson, we will explore population growth and some of the concerns associated with this growth, including overpopulation and overconsumption.

Population Pyramids: Definition, Types, Stages

13. Population Pyramids: Definition, Types, Stages

Did you know that there are five stages of population pyramids? In this lesson, learn more about the different types, and stages, of population pyramids as well as look at some examples.

Replacement Level: Definition & Overview

14. Replacement Level: Definition & Overview

Replacement rate is a number that relates to population replacement. How is this number calculated, and what does it mean? Read on for a better understanding of replacement rate and test your knowledge on fertility rates.
