S-shaped growth Flowers

dA / dt = r * A * (K-A) / K If A<<K then (K-A) / K ~1 And we have exponential growth Logistic Equation r net growth rate for non-stressed growth K carrying capacity Ao initial population (or Area)

dA / dt = r * A * (K-A) / K = r*A - r*A*(A/K) If A<<K then (K-A) / K ~1 And we have exponential growth

r net growth rate for non-stressed growth K carrying capacity Ao – initial population (or Area)

S-shaped growth FlowersVerifys

Problems with Logistic Equation Simple One example of s-shaped growth The linear decrease in growth rate is often not true in real life. The logistic equation fails to highlight the mechanisms responsible for limited growth. i.e. is it a decrease in birth rate or an increase in death rate.
