R Strategists

GetAttachment (3)

 

R strategists have small bodies and mature rapidly. Their population grows exponentially and then crashes. They live in unstable environments with low diversity and low resources. R strategists maximize their number of offspring, with low parental investment and random mating, which results in a large population that rapidly fluctuates. The offspring are independent right away and are mature very early. The weeds in the picture above are r strategists.
