Bio 270 Practice Population Growth Questions 1 Population Growth Questions Answer Key 1. Distinguish between exponential and logistic population growth. Give the equations for each. Exponential growth is continuous population growth in an environment where resources are unlimited; it is density-independent growth. dN/dt = rN where, dN/dt = change in population size; r = intrinsic rate of increase (= per capita rate of increase and equals birth rate minus death rate); N = population size. Nt = Noert where, Nt = population size at time t; No = original population size, r = intrinsic rate of increase and t = time Logistic growth is continuous population growth in an environment where resources are
