Hardcover:

9780809042593 | Hill & Wang Pub, December 1, 1994, cover price $25.00 | About this edition: Arguing that the everyday human intellect has been outpaced by scientific advances, a study of genetics and its potential impact on society explains what we have achieved while noting the ramifications of expanding on such technology.

With nearly 500 richly illustrative photographs, drawings, and pictures The Environment of Life provides a wonderfully colorful survey of mankind's ecological saga. It tells the story of human evolution, describing man's complex role in adapting to and shaping his environment. The clear, nontechnical language offers an open invitation to readers of all levels to follow the unfolding story, step-by-step, from its beginning with an examination of the animal kingdom, to an overview of ecology and ecosystems, the rise of humanity and civilization, and the emergence of today's pressing concerns for a clean, safe environment. The text draws on the latest findings from the many fields that treat man and animals in the natural world--including psychology, ethology, ecology, anthropology, agriculture, and conservation. It has been assembled under the contributory editorship of the eminent Colin Tudge, science writer and broadcaster, and former editor of New Scientist. Part One describes how scientists are investigating animal behaviors in order to determine the evolutionary significance of what they do and why, and in the process help solve key problems concerning population growth, pollution, industrial encroachment, and the international expansion of western technology. Part Two takes a closer look at humanity's often destructive impact on delicate ecological systems, and discusses ways of managing the environment that can restore a harmonious balance between modern needs and the natural world. In breadth and vision--and in its clarity and excellence of presentation--this volume represents a panorama of knowledge that belongs in every home and library.
