  • it is nice for you to ask Melody, Population crush is when there is a sudden decline in the numbers of individual members in a population, species or group of organisms.
  • But what is a population crush??
  • A population may suffer a population crash, if it uses up its resource supplies and temporarily overshoots, or exceeds, the carrying capacity of the environment. The reindeer population crashed when they were introduced onto a small island in the Bering Sea.
  • Mrs can you give an example of population crush and carrying capacity
  • Population crush is sudden reduction in the size of a population that can be caused by disease, or when its numbers exceed the carrying capacity of its habitat.
