A population is a total of all the organisms of the same group, that live in a particular geographical area, and have the capability of interbreeding. The world population is estimated by the United States Census Bureau to be 7.312 billion. Overpopulation can occur from an increase in births, a decline in mortality rates, an hike in immigration, or an unsustainable biome and depletion of resources. The human population has been increasing day by day. Over population effects nature, Eco systems, and other natural resources very badly.
