Environmental Conservation. Third Edition.
Dasmann, Raymond F.
This book is concerned with man and his environment. It is an attempt to look at environmental and human problems from an ecological viewpoint; an attempt to ". . . provide a factual basis on which action to improve the environment can be taken." This book is written for the beginning university student (and the interested public). As a result, emphasis is placed on conservation problems of the North American continent; however, a global view of conservation is presented. Chapter topics are varied and include urban blight, chemical pollutants, dwindling fuel and mineral resources, vanishing wildlife, and rampant technology. General and specific references follow each chapter. (LK)
