The logistic growth curve of animal population growth is more realistic than J shaped curve because:

1. Asexual mode of reproduction is rare in higher animals

2. Resources are finite and become limiting sooner or later.

3. Most animals are conformers rather than regulators

4. Abiotic factors affect animals more than plants

Verhulst-Pearl population growth is described by the equation

1. $\frac{dN}{dt}$ = rN

2. Nt = N0ert

3. Nt = N0+B+l-D-E

4. $\frac{dN}{dt}$ = rN$\left(\frac{K-N}{K}\right)$
