Limiting factors and models of population growth (2 of 2)

Unit 4: Populations
Lesson 3 of 16

Objective: Students will be able to 1) distinguish between an exponential and logistic growth model; 2) draw exponential and logistic growth curves; and 3) identify exponential and logistic growth in populations of American Bison and African Lions.

Big Idea: Growth models help ecologists understand population changes. How might we examine the growth of actual and theoretical populations to define exponential and logistic growth models?
