The multiplicity of species includes biological, linguistic, sexual, cultural, gender, etc. diversity, and all these elements coexist within the same geographic space; it is called geographical diversity. Rural populations possess distinct challenges and characteristics than urban areas that require an understanding of their unique cultural system and responses. The purpose of this chapter is to identify ways in which rural and urban geographical diversity influence people who live there and to understand how geography provides and limits access to resources and opportunities.
