Demographics can include any statistical factors that influence population growth or decline, but several parameters are particularly important: population size, density, age structure, fecundity (birth rates), mortality (death rates), and sex ratio (Dodge 2006). We introduce each of these in turn.

The demographic consequences of ecological interactions can be quite diverse. Ecological interactions, such as predation, competition, and mutualism, can influence the population dynamics of species within an ecosystem. Here are a few examples:

1. Predation: Predation can directly impact the population size and structure of both predator and prey species. It can regulate prey populations by reducing their numbers and potentially influencing their behavior and distribution.

2. Competition: Interspecific competition, where different species compete for similar resources, can affect population sizes and densities. It can lead to the exclusion of one species or the partitioning of resources, resulting in changes in population dynamics.

3. Mutualism: Mutualistic interactions, where two species benefit from each other, can have positive demographic consequences. For example, pollinators and flowering plants rely on each other for reproduction, leading to population growth and maintenance.

These are just a few examples, and the demographic consequences of ecological interactions can vary depending on the specific species involved and the nature of the interaction.

Demographic consequences of ecological interactions refer to the way that the population dynamics of one species can affect the population dynamics of another species. For example, when a predator preys on a population of prey, it can cause the prey population to decrease in size. This, in turn, can affect the population dynamics of other species that depend on the prey population for food or other resources. Conversely, when the predator population decreases, it can cause the prey population to increase. This is just one example of how ecological interactions can have demographic consequences for both predator and prey populations. There are many other examples of these types of
