Issues In-Depth: Enough already? Linking science, geography, mathematics, and sociology through population study

by: Roxanne Greitz Miller and Lilian M. Were

In several previous Issues In-Depth columns, science topics deeply affected by population size—such as climate change, fuel and agricultural resources, and ecology—have been discussed. In this column, the authors discuss the issue of population growth in developed and developing countries, why this is an important topic to discuss with young adolescents, and how interdisciplinary connections can be made between science and several other subject areas through an examination of populations across the globe.
