A scientist was studying a population of elephants. The first year, he counted a population of 80. Over the next eight years, the population’s numbers were 94, 100, 103, 110, 125, 120, 125, 120. The population never exceeded 125. What is the carrying capacity for this population?

(1) Answers

The probable carrying capacity of the elephant population on average would range from 125. Carrying capacity refers to the maximum population size of the species that can be supported or sustained within a given environment. Food, habitat, and water are contributing factors to a species carrying capacity.
