Description

This important book for scientists and nonscientists alike calls attention to a most urgent global problem: the rapidly accelerating loss of plant and animal species to increasing human population pressure and the demands of economic development. Based on a major conference sponsored by the National Academy of Sciences and the Smithsonian Institution, Biodiversity creates a systematic framework for analyzing the problem and searching for possible solutions.

Biodiversity

"Biodiversity" is a record of the highlights of the 1986 National Teleconference on Biodiversity. Featuring speakers E.O. Wilson, Thomas E. Lovejoy III, Peter H. Raven, Paul R. Ehrlich, Michael H. Robinson, and Joan Martin-Brown, this tape explores various aspects of biodiversity: what it is, why it is of importance to us, how it is being threatened, and what can be and is being done to protect and enhance it.
