carrying capacity-the maximum population that an area will support without undergoing deterioration.

Why does the population of sloth bears decrease? ----The number of sloth bears has continuously declined over the years. The total population is estimated to be between 7000 and 10,000. And with most wild animals the greatest threat to their existence is destruction of their habitat. Because of humans encroachment, they are often lured into raiding crops and therefore are hunted by farmers. In addition, sloth bears are killed for their bile which is used in traditional medicines.

limiting factor-a factor present in an environment that controls a process, particularly the growth, abundance or distribution of a population or ornisms in an ecosystem.

Limiting factors includes:food, water, light, shelter

For example____ If sloths eat leafs and lives in trees, So if people come and chop the trees down and they do the often, Tha trees well become a limiting factor for the sloths. Because this is there food and shelter that are being taken away.
