Decomposer Cycle
Exponential growth under ideal conditions with plenty of resources and limited competition. Population continues to grow until enviromental resistance takes effect (could be organisms have used all the resources available).

Organisms which follow this graph generally show great fluctation and a boom and bust pattern in population numbers.
Nitrogen in the atmosphere, nitrogen fixing-soil bacteria, nitrifying bacteria, and denitrifying bacteria
- More likely when resources are limited (limiting factors). - Exponential growth is only possible for a short period of time 
- More likely to be accurate until the population approaches carrying capacity.
Hadley Cells (larger cell, greatest heating), Ferrel Cells (flow in the opposite direction) Polar Cells (smaller cells)
