Understanding the Environment. Ag Ed Environmental Education Series.
Tulloch, Rodney W.
The document is a student resource unit to be used in teaching high school vocational agriculture students about the environment. The relationship between ecology and changes in the ecosystems induced by man are discussed. The kinds of environmental problems treated are pollution, land use, and natural resources. Some causes of environmental problems described are population (control and mobility), values, technology, misdirected economic incentives, and limitations of government, laws, and enforcement. Long-term effects of environmental deterioration are to be found in health, ecosystems, economic costs, esthetics, and recreation. Promising sources of solutions to these problems lie in citizen participation, environmental education, and government programs. Some present and future environmental needs are described. A 36-item bibliography concludes the document. (MS)
