Lab 58: Learning About Population Density

  • Population density: the numbers of individuals in a population in a certain area
  • Carrying capacity: the largest population density that a certain environment can support

In this activity you will:

  1. Practice one method of measuring population density
  2. Calculate the change in population density of one species
  • Set up a quadrat of 1 square meter
Count how many clovers, dandelions, and plantain that are in each quadrat
Population denisty-

Dandelion: 18.4/m^2

Plaintain: 3.8 /m^2

Clover: 59.8/m^2
