R-strategists are organisms that produce numerous offsprings for survival of the species. Quantity is what they focus on, which is the opposite of a K-strategist whom focuses on quality of the offspring. A small figure, maturing quickly to reproduce, and having a short life expectancy typically characterize the offspring the R-strategists produce. They have evolved to reproduce rapidly because their environment is typically unstable or rapidly changing. Examples of R-strategist include mice, turtles, bacteria, and mosquitoes. Mosquitoes are a common example of r-strategist because they are small, they don’t live that long, and they are quite ubiquitous in Florida.
