**density independent limiting factors**. The category of

**density independent limiting factors**includes fires, natural disasters (earthquakes, floods, tornados), and the effects of pollution.

Considering this, what are examples of density independent limiting factors?

The category of **density independent limiting factors** includes fires, natural disasters (earthquakes, floods, tornados), and the effects of pollution. The chances of dying from any of these **limiting factors** don't depend on how many individuals are in the population.

One may also ask, which is a density independent factor limiting population growth? **Density**-**independent factors**, such as rainfall, drought, or pollution, can also **limit populations**, but they seldom regulate **populations** because they act irregularly, regardless of the **population's density**. Cycles of **growth** and decline **limit** some predator and prey **populations**.

In respect to this, what are four density dependent limiting factors?

The **density dependent factors** are **factors** whose effects on the size or growth of the population vary with the population **density**. There are many types of **density dependent limiting factors** such as; availability of food, predation, disease, and migration. However the main **factor** is the availability of food.

What are density dependent and independent factors?

**Density**-**independent factors**, such as weather and climate, exert their influences on population size regardless of the population's **density**. In contrast, the effects of **density**-**dependent factors** intensify as the population increases in size. For example, some diseases spread faster in populations where individuals live…
