The given graph shows a population growing in a habitat having limited resources.
1. The graph shows an initial lag phase. After that an increase in population takes place known as acceleration following which deceleration takes place and at last asymptote occurs.
2.When the population reaches carrying capacity. A plot is formed showing sigmoid curve.
3. This type of growth is known as Verhulst-Pearl logistic growth.
4. This is represented by an equation: dN/dT=rN(K-N/K)
Here, (1-N/K) is environmental resistance
