  1. Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help forum. How about this term:


    Urbanization
    Expansion of cities into rural regions because of population growth. In most cases, population growth is primarily due to the movement of rural based people to urban areas. This is especially true in Less Developed Countries.

  2. Which statements describe the geographic theme of regions? Different types of regions have little or no effect upon each other. Climate regions are defined by their average temperature and their political system. Physical regions can be formed by mountains and oceans. Cultural regions are limited to specific countries. Nations that are members of an economic region enjoy fewer tariffs than non-members. Regions share one or more common characteristics.
