Comparison of distributed Malthusian and logistic growth models, with N(0) = 0.001, and with truncated exponential initial distribution on the interval c [0; 1] with parameter of the distribution being μ = 100. For the logistic model, K = 1. As one can see, dynamics up to the escape phase are identical but at the steady state, the logistic population maintains heterogeneity and consequently lower final E t[c]
