Reviewer Comments:

This resource is PowerPoint presentation about the concept of Carrying Capacity as it relates to Thomas Malthus.  The presentation includes content on the topics, relevant graphs and images, a video link, and thoughtful questions.  Although the lesson was created to be used when teaching Ishmael, it definitely has many applications across the disciplines.
