5). In a more definitive study, based on eight laboratory populations, population growth was again exponential (Reid 1989). Two procedures were used to calculate the intrinsic rate of increase (r) of a cockroach population. 0229. Data on growth and composition of the laboratory population agreed well with the data from the shipboard experiment (Ross et al. 1984). The growth rate of the laboratory population was considerably less than estimated from a model (Grothaus et al. 1981) or conditions of maximum fecundity (Archbold et al.
