Annotated Bibliography on Population, Resources and Environment Relationships.
The National Audubon Society is concerned with dependencies of wildlife and life support systems on this planet. Recognizing the role humans play in the interrelationships, Dr. Russell W. Peterson, Audubon's president, established the Population Program within the society's Environmental Policy Analysis Department to: analyze population, resource, and environment information; educate Audubon members and others on population, resource, and environment relationships; and assist in designing strategies for limiting population growth. This annotated bibliography, intended primarily for U.S. audiences, is one of the Population Program's efforts, citing readily accessible literature and focusing on publications covering resources and population from an environmental perspective. Citations are presented alphabetically by author under each of the following headings: general; conferences on various aspects; desertification; deforestation; energy; food and agriculture; climate; development; reports, modeling and future studies; policy recommendations; and other bibliographies (dealing with similar topics). Publication difficulty rating is provided for each citation, indicating if it is easy to understand, of medium difficulty, or technical. Each section is preceded by an introduction to the subject area and citations therein, and is concluded with a list of citations that deal with the subject area but have annotations in other parts of the bibliography.
