Lecture 9 Population Growth Models

- II. Logistic Population Growth
- A. What are the limitations on exponential

growth - 1. Density-dependent factors - increase in

importance as N increases. Resource

availability (food, habitat, etc.), disease,

predation rates, etc. - 2. Density-independent factors - chance events

that have about the same effect on b

and d in small populations as they have

in large populations. Disturbances, changes in

weather or climate, and other chance

occurrences. We can use stochastic models

to imitate chance events (FIG. 5). - B. Mathematical models of density-dependent

growth - 1. Continuous population growth model
