A Renewable Resource Model I
by Mike Martin

This page generates a plot of the volume of biomass for some plant resource.   The general model for the rate of change of the volume:

We assume a logistic form of growth with non-negative parameters R and K.   C is the number of consumers and q(V) is the rate of consumption per consumer.   On this page we assume a specific form of this rate function, so that:

V0 is the initial volume of biomass, V (0).

Enter in the values of the non-negative parameters V0, R, K, C, and Q and select the plotting bounds, then press the "Evaluate" button.
