1. Exponential growth occurs whenever the reproductive rate is greater than zero on a graph where the population size is plotted against time the plot of exponential growth rises quickly forming a J shaped curve. A logistic growth occurs when limiting factors restrict the size of the population to the carry capacity of the habitat.
