Lag phase: Population growth begins slowly from a few individuals.
Log phase: Exponential growth occurs, the conditions are ideal and maximum growth rate is reached.
S-phase: Growth rate begins to slow down as factors such as food, water and space become limiting.
LAG PHASE: Growth is slow at first, while the "bugs" acclimate to the food and nutrients in their new habitat.
LOG PHASE: Once the metabolic machinery is running, they start multiplying exponentially, doubling in number every few minutes.
Lag phase stage in the growth of a population where the organisms may increase in size but they do not increase in number.
Leguminous plant a plant that plays an important role in the nitrogen cycle
Lens a transparent structure in the eye which is responsible for focusing light onto the retina ...
(See Death phase, Lag phase, Logarithmic phase, Stationary phase.) H Haploid cell. A cell containing only one set, or half the usual (diploid) number, of chromosomes. Hemophilia.
The first phase of growth is the lag phase, a period of slow growth when the cells are adapting to the high-nutrient environment and preparing for fast growth. The lag phase has high biosynthesis rates, as growth factors(enzymes) are produced.
When the medium has just been inoculated with some bacteria, there is a first phase (lag phase) when there is no apparent growth. During that phase, there are few cell divisions, and the number of cells does not increase. This phase can last a few hours.
Now another kind of growth that is more likely is what is called Logistic growth and that's when the population starts to rise and you will go through the lag phase and exponential growth phase but ultimately various factors in the environment start limiting the number of organisms that can actually ...
