Renewable resource  (RENEWABLE resource)

The theory of population replacement1 treats population as a renewable resource2 in the mathematical sense of the term. A distinction is drawn between gross replacement3, where no account is taken of mortality before the end of the reproductive period (620-1), and net replacement4, in which this mortality is taken into account.
