Populations - Density Independent Population Regulators

Postby ETlogic » Tue Nov 13, 2007 10:05 am

Hi, I am curious about what some density independent variables would be that would change a population. Density independent meaning that a given populations birth or death rates change is not do to population density...

Just looking for some examples. Thanks.
