Question 268484

1. The following population, C, has no limits on food resources or space:

Population size = 600 Births = 150 Deaths = 25

A. Calculate the r for this population if it is experiencing exponential growth

B. How many individuals will be in the population at the start of the second generation?

How many individuals will be in the population at the start of the third generation?

Now consider population D, in which food resources are limited and it is experiencing a logistic growth pattern. Population size = 500 rmax= the same for the previous problem (Population C). Carrying Capacity = 1,000 A. 

How many individuals would be in the population at the start of the second generation.

Calculate the number of individuals that would be in the population at the end of the third generation.
