Using the Logistic Growth Equation to Determine Maximum Population Growth Rate

by Elias Breitner


Submitted : Fall 2015

In this project, the maximum population growth rate of a hypothetical population of Spotted Fritillary butterflies was determined using the logistic growth equation. Based on the information provided, it was found that the population could reach a maximum growth rate of 12.5 individuals per month without exceeding the ecosystem’s carrying capacity of this particular species.
