**Description**:

Recent developments in stochastic population dynamics involve interplay between environment and population, notably population size through a carrying capacity. This results in dependence between reproducing individuals and, hence, a framework which has hitherto not been accessible through models allowing individual, stochastic variation. The life-time and starting conditions of suitably scaled processes as well as inference about the carrying capacity itself will be discussed.
