Economics, Ethics, Ecology: Roots of Productive Conservation.
Jeske, Walter E., Ed.
Forty-seven articles represent most of the papers presented at the annual meeting of the Soil Conservation Society of America. The conference addressed the facts and values from economics, ethics, and ecology as they pertain to critical issues in land and water conservation in North America. Part I includes discussions of economic realities, ethical perspectives, and sustained use of natural resources. A number of prominent natural resource leaders then look closely at three issues confronting North American nations: land planning (Part II), water management (Part III), and the implications of energy development for land and water (Part IV). Each part includes the summary of a roundtable discussion that involved meeting registrants. Part V reports on five major resource-oriented assessments sponsored by the U.S. government and presents futurist Robert Theobald's ideas about what natural resource professionals can do to influence the course of political events. Parts VI through XI consist of papers that discuss a number of current resource issues in the context of economic realities, ethical values, and ecological principles. (Author/DC)
