Summary "This timely collection of 15 essays addresses the relationships between human population growth (and consumption); the need to increase food supplies to feed the world population, and the chances for avoiding the extinction of a major proportion of the biodiversity that collectively makes our survival on earth possible. Those relationships are highly intertwined, and changes in each of them are increasingly blocking our chances to achieve environmental stability on our fragile planet"-- Provided by publisher.
