In Chapter 1, we assumed density independent growth. That is, population growth unlimited by competition for resources. Most biological populations, however, do not long sustain such growth. Even in an isolated laboratory population, growing without competing species or predators, realized growth slows and ceases. 1. Population growth slows after day 2 and almost ceases by day 7. 5 ml sample. Based on data such as this, one of the basic assumptions of most ecological models is the populations do not have unlimited resources and eventually the population encounters a limiting resource (or perhaps, a parasite or predator) which restricts population growth.

After four generations, the population is projected to drop to between 12 and 13. After five generations, it declines to around 5 per hectare and is, by definition, no longer viable. Five generations, times17 years per generation, equals 85 years. The population is not viable 85 years after the first survey in 1987. That is, in the year 2072. However, action to conserve this forest really cannot wait until 2072.
