R-Strategist - Weeds

R-strategists are species that have small bodies, rapid maturation, and fast growing populations. Although R-Strategist populations are large, they tend to fluctuate. The goal of the r-strategists is to spread quickly for sake of survival. The mating in r-strategists is random and parents have little investment in their offsprings. Examples of r-strategists are weeds, mosquitos and mice.
