Geometric growth rate. Under these conditions, percapita rate of increase is maximum rate for species called rmax (biotic potential) • dN/dt = rmaxN o change in population numbers over a short time period = max per capita rate of increase(N) o size of population increases at a constant rate, resulting in an exponential growth curve • Exponential growth – a larger population accumulates more individuals per unit of time faster than a smaller population. Larger populations experience more births and deaths than smaller populations and this occurs because population growth depends on N and rmax....
