Natural Sciences >> OtherEstimating Future Population Numbers for Whooping Cranes Using the Logistic Equationby Frederick Geller
Submitted : Fall 2014 By using the logistic equation, future numbers of individuals for a given time can be estimated. This can be used to predict growth of a population over time. Whooping Cranes are an endangered species whose numbers have increased since the mid 20^{th} century. By using data on the number of individuals per year for a flock, the growth can be predicted for different carrying capacities.
