Population Dynamics and Global Change: The Need for New Conceptual Maps
GeoJournal (1996)
  • Kenneth Dahlberg, Western Michigan University
Current approaches to population: 1) focus too much on humans and not on their interactions over time with populations of other species; 2) focus too much on the number of humans and not on their differential resource use and environmental impact; 3) accept uncritically the assumptions and concepts of industrial society regarding the nature of progress and the neutrality of technologies, markets, and trade. Broader and more integrated approaches are needed to address current international and global realities and trends.
