In this paper, Numerical solution of Fractional Order Logistic Equations is considered by fractional differential transform method (FDTM). The method provides the solution quickly in the form of a convergent series. Our method reduces the computational difficulties existing in the other traditional methods. To show the efficacy of the results, two examples are considered.
