In what ways can you compare growth of living systems quantitatively?
Answer

Quantitative comparisons between the growth of living system can  be made in two ways :

(i) By measuring and comparing the total growth per unit time. This is called the absolute growth rate.

(ii) The growth of the given system per unit time expressed on a common basis, e.g., per unit initial parameter. This is called the relative growth rate.
