The movement of individuals into an area is called immigration
The range or area occupied by a population is its geographic distribution

If a population grows larger than the carrying capacity of its environment, death rate may rise
Density -independent limiting factor hurricane
A limiting factor that depends on population size is called a density dependent limiting factor
The scientific study of human population is called demography
The demographic transition is complete when population growth stops
The movement of individuals out of an area is emigration
A predator of a rabbit is eagle
