In considering energy flow between organism and environment, population dynamics for single species is studied in the present research. When the total available energy of environment is infinite, a model obeying the Malthusian law is obtained. Under the condition of limited total available energy, a model approximate Logistic Model is also established. These two models give a better comprehension on the ecological effects of growth rate and carry capacity of environment.
