Explain the two types of population growth.
Analyze the type of growth exhibited by the human population and its effect on the environment.

There are two types of population growth. The first is logistic. The logistic population curve is also called an S-curve. It takes into account a carrying capacity and this is clearly seen when a population can no longer grow due to limiting factors such as food, habitat, water or reproduction limitations (Campbell & Reece, 2002) . This could be a result of competition between members of the same species or between two different species populations.
