- The crazy ones
Here's to the crazy ones. The ones who see things differently. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them.

See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve.

Populations may display short-term fluctuations due to density-independent factors. The population of Dungeness crabs fluctuates due to density-dependent factors like intraspecific competition and cannibalism and density-independent factors like changes in water temperature due to ocean currents.
The populations of many short-lived animals, or those living in variable environments, go through a period of exponential growth, followed by a sudden crash (boom and burst curve). The crash occurs before the population reaches the carrying capacity; it is due to a density-independent limitation such as weather or other physical environmental factors.
