  • Effect of predator-prey relationship on population size
    • 1. Predators eat their prey, reducing its population
    • 3.The predator population is reduced as some individuals fail to obtain enough prey for their survival
    • With more prey now available as food, the predator population increases
    • 5. The prey population therefore increases
    • 2. With fewer prey available, predators are in greater competition with each other to catch the remaining prey
    • 4. With fewer predators left, fewer prey are eaten
