Relationship between population growth and incidence of anther smut in Silene latifolia and HIV in humans. (a) Silene annual growth rates measured as ln(Nt+1+1)/Nt for 1989–1993 in Giles County, Virginia; data grouped by population size (classes 8–15, 16–31, and 32–63), dot sizes are proportional to the number of populations (range=3–239). (b) Data for humans are predicted annual per capita growth rates for 2000–2025 in sub-Saharan African countries; compiled from United Nations, World Population Prospects. The 2002 Revision.
