What populations most often fit the exponential growth model? What about the logistic growth model? When is the optimal time to harvest some resources, like fish?

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
