Environmental resistance



The resistance presented by the environmental conditions to limit a species from growing out of control or to stop them from reproducing at maximum rate.


Environmental resistance includes a mixture of abiotic factors such as temperature, and biotic factors such as natural enemies (biological control agents) to limit the organism for expressing its full capacity to reproduce.
