A K-strategist is considered to be a member of a species with a stable population with stable living conditions, a large body, long life expectancy, with less offspring that require parental attention. Examples of K-strategists include humans, rodents, elephants, etc. K-strategists will almost never be bugs, or anything that lives in unstable conditions. The exact opposite of a K-strategist is called an “R-strategist”. A population of K-strategists will likely be less susceptible to slight changes in the environment than R-strategists. The geese pictured in the photo above are K-strategists because they exhibit all of the characteristics that were mentioned above.
