Objective 5: Explain population ecology. Anticipated Problem: What is population ecology? V. Population ecology is the study of how plant and animal populations within a community affect each other. Population ecology can be affected by the attributes of density, age, and distribution. Population ecology is also affected by population growth, competition, and pre-. Human ecology promises an approach to these complex challenges, a way to understand these problems holistically and to start to manage them more effectively.
