Environment, population, and health dynamics

The Population-Environment component of the Broom Center is rooted in the work of Professor David Lopez-Carr and his collaborators. This is a growing field spanning population studies with diverse environmental sciences. The interactions between human populations and the environment and their implications for drivers and outcomes of environmental dynamics and population and health disparities are explored by demographers and other social scientists in terms of the relationships among a full range of population dynamics (e.g., population size, growth, density, age and sex composition, migration, urbanization, vital rates) and environmental changes (e.g., climate change, land use change, air, soil, and water pollution).
