Man...An Endangered Species?
Department of the Interior, Washington, DC.
The general theme of this 1968 yearbook is that man is a threatened species, facing overpopulation and unbridled technology - both self induced. The presentation is broad, relating to many aspects of conservation and natural resources in the United States in a descriptive, non-technical style. The yearbook is divided into major topics: Land Resources, Fish and Wildlife Resources, Water Resources, Mineral and Fuel Resources, and Human Resources. These chapters provide highlights of the work being done by the various bureaus and offices of the Department of the Interior. Many color photographs are included throughout the yearbook. (PR)
