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: 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 ...

drink water, orange juice or Cola before eating?

Drinking too much cola is not good for health. Because it contains phosphoric acid which reduces the bone density and also the reason for chronic kidney diseases. Drinking citrus juices is good for health, because it contains lot of vit C. I think if pH increased due drinking ...

centrifugation of hemocytes

... the cells pelleted, they are just not viable. If you do not get any signal, you have problem with your centrifugation. Teo things to consider - density and viscosity of your sample (is that only the lymph or do you add anything?) and amount of your sample in the tube/well.

... of the measuring jug she is using in an experiment. The label on the jug claims that it measures volume to an accuracy of plus or minus 5 cm3. The density of water is about 0.999 g cm−3, which means that 100 cm3 of water should have a mass of about 100 g. She repeatedly measures out 100 cm3 samples ...
