This is one of seven special reports supporting a research study of natural resources conducted by the National Academy of SciencesâNational Re- search Council at the request of the President of the United States. Each of these seven supporting documents was prepared under the supervision of a member of the Academy-Research Council Committee on Natural Resources, who called upon the expert advice of a number of consultants to assist in identifying the research needs and opportunities relating to the particular resource area or problem under consideration. The seven reports of supporting studies are as follows: A. Renewable Resources B. Water Resources C. Mineral Resources D. Energy Resources E. Marine Resources F. Environmental Resources G. Social and Economic Aspects of Natural Resources The general conclusions and recommendations of the Committee as a whole are presented in a summary report which has been forwarded to President Kennedy, together with the supporting studies. The grateful thanks of the Committee on Natural Resources and of the Federal Government, for which these special reports were prepared, are due those whose experience and ideas are reflected in this report.
