What is the biological definition of a population?

1 Answer

A population is all the members of one species that live in a defined area.


A species is defined as living things that can interbreed to produce fertile offspring. Fertile offspring are capable of producing their own offspring.

An example of a population would be all of the Canada lynx that live in the state of Minnesota.
