## What is the difference between logistic growth and exponential growth graphs?

In logistic growth, a population’s per capita growth rate gets smaller and smaller as population size approaches a maximum imposed by limited resources in the environment, known as the carrying capacity ( K). Exponential growth produces a J-shaped curve, while logistic growth produces an S-shaped curve.

## How are exponential growth and logistic growth related?

Exponential population growth: When resources are unlimited, populations exhibit exponential growth, resulting in a J-shaped curve. When resources are limited, populations exhibit logistic growth. In logistic growth, population expansion decreases as resources become scarce.

**What is the difference between exponential growth and logistic growth quizlet?**

Exponential growth = individuals are not limited by food or disease; the population will continue to grow exponentially; not realistic. The graph is described as a “J curve.” Logistic growth = the population begins to grow exponentially before reaching a carrying capacity and leveling off.

**How do you explain exponential growth?**

Exponential growth is a process that increases quantity over time. It occurs when the instantaneous rate of change (that is, the derivative) of a quantity with respect to time is proportional to the quantity itself.

### Which statement best describes the difference between exponential and logistic growth?

### What is the key difference between exponential and logistic growth models of population dynamics?

The exponential growth model describes a population with unlimited resources, which keeps growing bigger and faster over time. The logistic growth model describes a population that has limited resources or other limits to growth, which grows more slowly as it gets larger.

**What is a logistic growth pattern?**

As competition increases and resources become increasingly scarce, populations reach the carrying capacity (K) of their environment, causing their growth rate to slow nearly to zero. This produces an S-shaped curve of population growth known as the logistic curve (right).

**What is exponential growth and what does it look like on a graph?**

An exponential growth function can be written in the form y = abx where a > 0 and b > 1. The graph will curve upward, as shown in the example of f(x) = 2x below. Notice that as x approaches negative infinity, the numbers become increasingly small.

## How are exponential and logistic growth models similar how are they different quizlet?

Logistic growth occurs when there are limited resources due to competition; it slows, stops, and has a period of exponential growth. Exponential growth occurs when there is unlimited resources due to little competition; individuals produce at a constant rate.

## What’s the difference between dN DT and R?

In these models, dN/dt changes over time (depends on t), but r stays the same (does not depend on t). Also, r is a per capita growth rate, meaning that it’s measured per individual, whereas dN/dt is measured for the overall population.
