This term is used more frequently for humans, but it can also be used for any type of being on earth.
During the mid -twentieth century the population has been growing considerably causing concern in the governments of each country also in international entities
As time passes, the population increases. According to the 2016 calculations, 7.4 billion inhabitants were while during 2017 this increase in large quantity reaching 7,530 million inhabitants worldwide, with an increase of 0.8%. Its increase began by developing the industrial revolution which led to improve health systems and means of transportation.
The specific places where the greatest increase in the population has been registered are in developing countries, while the lowest increase in the population occurs in developed countries, for example:
According to the arduous studies carried out by international organizations (the United Nations), there are two types of population increase:
It happens when some species do not have limits in their diet or do not feel limited in their natural resources, or other species that make them feel threatened, much less viruses, influences or mortal diseases for the existence of those who have not negative modification inIts birth rate or increases its mortality rate, it will have accelerated and continuous growth as soon as they reach their reproduction stage (sexual maturity).
When there are too many people or animals in that place, natural resources could be consumed exponentially, reaching such an extent that those food sources and resources necessary for the reproduction of the species are exhausted. Creating deaths, the excessive decrease of the population and in worse cases until the extinction of the species.
It is the opposite of exponential growth, since here the species have limiting factors, whether a few natural resources, other species such as predators that affect their mortality rate in a potential way or simply infections and diseases, which would cause the species to experience some kindof logistics growth. Those factors would kill all kinds of excess in the species and maintain a balance.
Factors that influence population growth:
All those improvements in the lifestyle that lead to ease and in their state of comfort, example: tools that relieved people’s lives in the construction of habitable houses.
Likewise, as soon as the Industrial Revolution began affection in such a positive way, employees of each industry, which caused a noticeable population increase to be generated.
Without leaving behind the technological advance and more in the medicinal field that generates a great life period for people, managing to be an essential factor in terms of population growth.
The most populated countries:
China and India
60% of the world population lives in Asia (4.400 million), 16% in Africa (1.200 million), 10% in Europe (738 million), 9% in Latin America and the Caribbean (634 million) and the remaining 5% in North America (358 million) and Oceania (39 million). China (1.400 million) and India (1.300 million) The countries with the largest population continue to be. Both have more than 1.000 million people and represent 19% and 18% of the world population respectively.
The moment the population will spend each of the natural resources that the planet gives us to be able to support life, not only of our species but all those that we inhabit. The planet will be on loaded by making the lack of these resources significantly reduce the amount of species inhabiting it.
