International Union for Conservation of Nature Bulletin (IUCN), Volume 3 Number 2.
IUCN Bulletin, v3 n2 Feb 1972
Compiled in this newsletter are activities, viewpoints, reports, and publications of the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN). The principal article in this issue is a discussion of land use, one of the major forces contributing to the crisis of the human environment in addition to population and pollution. Historical situations, surveys of land capabilities, planning for land uses, control of settlement, economic and social pressures, and traditions regarding land use are all explored. Additional items describe a classification system of national parks and equivalent reserves; World Wildlife Fund (WWF) contributions; IUCN/WWF concern with the fur industry; survey projects of the Seychelles marine environment; conservation and national park conferences and meetings; and new IUCN publications. Special supplements to this edition present the recommendations from two conferences: First International Scientific Conference on Vicuna Conservation, Lima and Nazca, Peru, December, 1971 and the European Working Conference on Environmental Conservation Education, Ruschlikon, Switzerland, December, 1971.
