Lecture 9 - Goals Part I: POPULATION GROWTH Be able to: Explain under what circumstances to expect a population to exhibit geometric growth. Given numerical values for three of the four parameters in the equation for size of a population undergoing geometric growth, and the equation itself, calculate the value of the fourth parameter (e.g. given N o , λ, and t, calculate N t ). Draw the general pattern of geometric population growth over time, and recognize that pattern. Explain under what circumstances to expect a population to exhibit exponential growth. Given numerical values for three of the four parameters in the equation for size of a population undergoing exponential growth, and the equation itself, calculate the value of the fourth parameter (e.g. given N o , r max , and t, calculate N t ). Given numerical values for two of the three parameters in the equation for the rate of exponential population growth at a given time, and the equation itself, calculate the value of the third parameter (e.g. given N and r max , calculate dN/dt). Draw the general pattern of exponential population growth over time, and recognize that pattern. Distinguish between density-dependent and density-independent effects on birth and death rates, based either on graphical or textual information.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
