### Compare exponential growth with logistic growth?

Exponential growth occurs when numbers increase by a certain
factor in each successive time period. Logistic growth is
population growth that starts with a minimum number of individuals
and reaches a maximum depending on the carrying capacity of the
habitat. In exponential growth population grows slowly when it's
small, but as the population gets larger, growth speeds up. In
logistic growth, when the population is small, the growth rate is
fast because there are plenty of natural resources. (Logistic) As
the population approaches the carrying capacity, resources become
scarce. Completion for food, shelter and mates increases between
individuals of a population. As a result, the growth rate slows.
Exponential growth, grows fast in the beginning and then slows
down. Logistic growth grows slow in the beginning and then speeds
up.

###### Asked in Science, Transportation and Logistics

### A logistic growth pattern from an exponential growth pattern?

The growth rate in an exponential growth will continue to
increase over time. In logistic growth, the growth rate will
increase until it begins to level off at at the carrying capacity
of an environment, where the amount of resources determines the
amount of organisms that can be sustained in a given
environment.
