Explain reasons for the exponential growth phase, the plateau phase and the transitional phase between these two phases.
Below is a sigmoid shaped growth curve that represents population growth
This model shows the changes in population size over time.
Show below is an example of what happens when a population is expanding into a habitat offering initial low resistance or low limiting factors.
a) Exponential phase - there is unlimited grwoth of the population due to the absence of limiting factors. The rate of natality + immigration is greater than mortality…
