Paper Abstract

Carrying capacity research is one of the most appealing topics as well as a theoretical frontier in modern ecology. Based on an overall review of the studies of carrying capacity, the paper surveyed the evolution and development process of the carrying capacity concepts and a framework including three systems (natural ecosystem; human ecosystem; socio-economic activity system) are presented. This framework shows clearly the evolution process of the concept of carrying capacity and this work reveals the relations, similarities and differences of all of the carrying capacity concepts.
