Match each term with its most suitable description.

_____ carrying capacity a. maximum rate or increase per individual under ideal conditions
_____ exponential growth b. population growth plots out as an S-shaped curve
_____ biotic potential c. maximum number or individuals sustainable by the resources in a given environment
_____ limiting factor d. population growth plots out as a J-shaped curve
_____ logistic growth e. essential resource that restricts population growth when scarce

Summary Introduction

To match: The terms with its suitable descriptions.

Explanation

Carrying capacity: c. maximum number of individuals sustainable by the resources in a given environment.

The maximum number of individuals in a population those can withstand in the environment indefinitely by the resources is called carrying capacity. Thus, the population growth attains logistic growth if the population reaches the carrying capacity.

Exponential growth: d. population growth plots out as a J-shaped curve.

The population growth rate becomes more rapid in proportion to the growing total size of population. If the population grows abruptly, it attains the peak value forming a j-shaped curve.

Biotic potential: a. maximum rate of increase per individual under ideal conditions.

Biotic potential is the theoretical rate at which the population grows if the resources are unlimited, and there were no predators and pathogens...
