What is exponential growth?

What is exponential growth ?
a) Rapid growth in population that leads to disbalance in birth and
deaths
b) Slow growth rate
c) Growth limited by limiting factors
d) None

Correct Answer - A
Ans. is ‘a’ i.e., Rapid growth in population that leads to
dysbalance in birth and deaths [Ref O.P. Ghai 7Ve p. 93]
Exponentional Vs logistic population growth
The population growth of a species is regulated by limiting factors
(resources) that exist within the species environment.
Population growth maintains equilibrium in all species under normal
conditions bacause of these limiting factors.
A populations overall growth rate is affected by the birth
rate and death rate.
The rate of increase within a populations is represented by the birth
rate minus death rate.
When the growth rate in a population is represented by the birth rate
minus the death rate, the population remains at a constant level.
