In growth pattern, (1 – N+K) is
(a) carrying capacity
(b) intrinsic rate of natural increase
(c) environmental resistance
(d) biotic potential

Dear Student! Environmental resistance includes all the factors (abiotic and biotic) that limit the growth of a population. Abiotic factors can include the availability of water, light, shelter etc. Biotic factors can include competition, predation etc. In growth pattern, (1 – N+K) is environmental resistance. Therefore, the correct option is (c). Regards,
