Miramar-Pembroke Pines-20130809-00042

There is two types of strategists in living. The r-strategist and the k-strategist. In the picture shown above, the weeds are an r-strategist. R-strategists reproduce rapidly in order to maintain predominance in a region with an unstable environment. Characteristics of r-strategists include small bodies, rapid regeneration, and the ability to disperse offspring widely throughout the region in a short amount of time. Almost all of this is contrasted in k-strategists.
