Answer

Logistic Growth is a type of population growth that occurs when the growth rate decreases as the population reaches carrying capacity.

Solution

a

Initial Phase: Rapid exponential growth due to abundant resources

b

Deceleration Phase: Growth rate slows down as resources become limited

c

Stable Equilibrium Phase: Population size stabilizes at the carrying capacity of the environment

d

Mathematical Model: The logistic growth can be described by the equation $\frac{dN}{dt} = rN\left(1 - \frac{N}{K}\right)$ where $N$ is the population size, $r$ is the intrinsic growth rate, and $K$ is the carrying capacity

Key Concept

Logistic growth model

Explanation

It represents how a population grows more slowly as it nears its carrying capacity due to limited resources.
