Population

Population

A population is a group of organisms of the same species that are capable of breeding and live in the same general geographic location. When any pair of these organisms engages in reproductive processes, a fully functional offspring will emerge the majority of the time. In the geographical aspect, members of a population must live in a reasonable distance from each other wherein they can communicate effectively. The image of the moth (one of many that have attached themselves to my house) pictured above encompasses exactly the necessary characteristics mentioned above.
