  1. My biome is the decidous forest. A limiting factor is a resource or factor that controls a process. Urbanization and deforestation are limiting factors.

  2. Limiting factors can be food, shelter, water, space. Limiting factors are problems in the environment that can possibly make populations of organisms decrease

  3. A limiting factor is a component of an organism’s environment, such as a nutrient, that is in short supply and therefore limits the oraganism’s ability to reproduce in greater numbers. I did the desert biome and two limiting factors are the small amounts of rainfall and the dry, hot weather.

  4. My biome was the Taiga Biome, or boreal forest. Some limiting factors would be logging because it limits how much room they have to live. Also tempurature because the very low temps last for a long time and can limit access to food.

  5. Limiting factors are certain factors in an environment that limit the chance of survival to a certain organism. My biome was the tropical grasslands, one limiting factor might be the lack of water and food, for some organisms it is very hard to find an abundant food and water source.

  6. A limiting factor is something in an ecosystem that prevents it from growing. In the boreal forest, soil nutrients and temperature are limiting factors.

  7. Well that would depend on what exactly you are talking about in the forest. Each organism and species has its own limiting factors, though many share some in common.
    Availability of food
    Predators
    Land
    Rainfall
    Proximity to others of the same species
    Temperature
    Sunlight
    Ph Level

  8. A limiting factor is something that prevents an organism from growing. In the tundra it is the lack of food and the lack of shelter.

  9. Limiting factors in a tropical rainforest biome are predators and rainfall. A limiting factor is something that causes a population to decrease in size.

  10. Limiting factors are factors in an environment that limit the chance of survival to a certain organism. My project was over tropical grasslands, one limiting factor might be the lack of water, for some organisms it is very hard to find an abundant water source because water sources are drying out.

  11. A limiting factor or limiting resource is a factor that controls a process, such as organism growth or species population. My biome was the desert and two limiting factors would be lack of water in the desert and the temperature being too hot for most organisms to survive.

  12. Limiting sources food, shelter, water, space. I did freshwater and two limiting factors are certain hunting grounds and fruit grown in trees.

  13. Limited factors in my biome has limited factors such as heat because the ground is always cold. And food because most plants are frozen
