Is there a sigmoid growth of Gause's Paramecium caudatum in constant environment

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • Gause's experiments of Paramecium caudatum have been thought as one of the most accurate experiments in ecology. Although it has been hypothesized by ecologists that the population dynamics can be approximated by the classical sigmoid curve, there are still some questions as to whether the analytical method is accurate enough in relation to experimental data. Therefore analytical results are frequently encountered with doubt. In this study, we estimated some growing parameters based strictly on the life history of Paramecium caudatum and with a more flexible logistic model. Since the intrinsic growth rate values fell in different regions, the population dynamics were considered to follow a complex pattern.
