They can't exceed the carrying capacity for long periods of time. The growth curve will go above the c.c. and then come down again - it oscillates around the carrying capacity. If a population grows more slowly I guess it will just reach the c.c. rather than shooting past it.

Alright i think i understand this, thanks to you. Do all organisms have a death phase, or does it just depend on a certain situation. e.g. bacteria has a death phase, does this mean all organisms have a death phase? By the way are you studying A-level biology?
