A. World Population Growth: see text figs [human population* & exponential model* &  sigmoid-curves*]
               Unlimited population growth (exponential growth) assumes unlimited resources (?)
               zero population growth occurs when per capita birth rate = death rate
               carrying capacity is the maximum population size that a particular environment can support.

   
                                               
    EARTH...   what is its carrying capacity?     and      how will it be achieved?
