In our current lab, “Population Biology,” we are learning principle of competitive exclusion: that no two species can engage the same niche. Now, let’s take this concept and expand it to the scale of entire Earth. The human population recently reached seven billion people. Do you feel we are nearing the Earth's carrying capacity for our species? Critically discuss any impacts the exponential growth of our species could have on other species and their habitat. At last, discuss what you could do to reverse the trend of competitive exclusion by humans so that we don’t exhaust the limited resources of Earth?
