Density-dependent

Density-dependent

(Science: epidemiology) 1. Effects whose intensity changes with increasing population density.

2. Effects whose intensity increases with increasing population density, for example a mortality which becomes very high near a carrying capacity. Effects which become less pronounced at higher population sizes (perhaps the reduction in fecundity caused by the difficulty of mating) are sometimes called inverse density dependent. Density dependent effects are often a cause of nonlinearity in a model.

Re:

... molds, but what I was going for is a concept where the individual viruses would group up and attach via their tail fibers in order to change their density from gelatinous to a more elastic substance that mimics muscle tissue...which I'm not even sure is possible. Basically, on the micro scale you ...

The still living viruses mass around this skeletal structures in order to form a composit entity in a manner akin to how we're ...

Re: The most boring tasks in Biology

... characteristics after changes in illumination at different iron concentrations. This involved lots of time points where I needed the cell density in the culture, so I spent many many sessions over a period of many months counting the cells in those cultures.

Recommendations for Bacteria Detection?

... to check the number of bacteria present in the water. I'm not as interested in particular species as I am in obtaining some idea of "bacteria density" or parts per gram. I'm not sure if it matters, but the water may be contaminated with fertilizer, soaps, etc... Is there some kind of ...
