NEW YORK CITY8,400,000 citizens. Largest city in the United States
New York is the culture capital of the world, many different races and genders.
Overpopulation is a huge factor in New York. Most commonly caused by number of factors such as reduced mortality rate, better medical facilities, depletion of resources.
As technology advances the death rates lower and lower each year, saving more lives. Not saying that is a bad thing but there is just no more room! Eventually resources such as imported and natural grown goods will become very scarce. No supply to much demand. To help solve this global issue we need to work together to have the perfect population.
IMPACT ON SPECIES
Many plants and animals are affected by Overpopulation too. Many animals might reproduce fast and not have enough prey to live on, eventually killing of some of the population. Plants need lots of oxygen and sunlight to grow and live. If many new things are being built such as more homes for the overpopulated city many plants and trees that gave nutrients to the animals in that surrounding ecosystem would be excavated.
IMPACT ON BIODIVERSITY
Overpopulation affects many humans in a area. The more people in a area, the more likely they are to get diseases or injured with more moving objects like buses and bikes in a city environment. The disease rate is 20 percent higher in overpopulated areas such as citys than small suburbs.
