According to the logistic growth model, what happens to a population when the size of the population reaches carrying capacity?

Logistic population growth occurs when the growth rate decreases as the population reaches carrying capacity.

Explanation:

1. The logistic population growth occurs when the growth rate of decreases as the population reaches the carrying capacity.
2. The carrying capacity is the maximum number of individuals in a population that the environment can support. Thank.
