Cities and the Web of Life



A stone falling into a pond causes ripples that spread out in all directions over the water surface. The same sort of thing happens following a change, however small, in an ecosystem. This is also true for a topic of study. Investigations in environmental pollution can lead into the fields of biology, chemistry, physics, meteorology, and other sciences. They can also lead into areas of study that are more socially oriented. These include the social studies, business, social geography, and history.
