With our symposium theme of population, we are paying particular attention to articles about the subject and both National Geographic and Grist are offering up extensive series on population that are worth checking out.
From National Geographic:
Population is a complicated topic. With the worldwide population slated to top 7 billion in 2011, we decided it was one we needed to tackle. But we wanted to do it in a way that gives readers room to think. We spread out our coverage over a year, with articles that take deep dives into specific issues—demographics, food security, climate change, fertility trends, managing biodiversity—
that relate to global population.
