Since usually environments are not idealized and resources are limited, exponential growth curve doesn’t occur as much as a logistic growth curve. Logistic growth is a type of growth curve,in a S-form, that occurs more often in an environment. Since each environment has a carrying capacity,which is the number of individuals from a population an environment
