I've been sitting on this question for a while so I decided to finally ask for help here. Populations of organisms grow at an _____________________ rate, but ____________ factors such as food, habitat, predators, weather, disease, climate, & temperature can affect the maximum population size an area can support. At first I wanted to put in "stable" and "biotic", but the "an" before the first blank space seems to imply its a word that starts with a vowel and the second blank uses abiotic and biotic factors, so I'm just stumped on what biology vocab words I'm supposed to put in.

well i figured the first blank is probably exponential, still not sure on the second blank.

Biotic factors are all the living things in an ecosystem, habitat, or biome. They can be producers, consumers, or decomposers. In contrast, abiotic factors are the non-living components of an environment. So I don't think biotic would be correct for the second blank.

Well my best guess for the second blank is keystone now. I've only seen it applied to species so far in my text book and assignments though, so a confirmation would be nice.

It could be, im not entirely sure...what about a limiting factor?

Yeah I finished the rest of the assignment, and the answer for the question after is keystone, so I doubt they would reuse the same answer right away. Limiting fits the best here, thanks for the help.
