The Future of Life: Biodiversity in the New Millennium
Excellent. A vivid and hopeful journey through the world of
biodiversity. Wilson's ideas are seminal to any serious discussion of
the relationship between science, nature, and humanity.
-- Peter Raven, Chair, National Research Council, Division of Earth and Life Studies
Bottlenecks: From the destruction of natural habitats to the
accelerating loss of species, Wilson sets his stage by revealing how
the bottlenecks of "overpopulation" and "overconsumption"
threaten to undo the web of life that supports us.
Biodiversity: Magnifigance and Peril: In turn, WIlson paints a
paradoxical picture of our moment in history--at once illustrating
how the natural world is far richer than previously conceived, while
at the same time demonstrating how half of our species could be
gone by mid-century.
The Economics of Life: Now, defying common wisdom, Wilson
argues that conservation of our natural world is imperative for
economic well-being and growth--rather than standing in
opposition to it. Here, he reveals how the loss of biodiversity
translates into economic losses for agriculture, medicine, and
A Moral Compass Points to Tomorrow: Drawing upon the
economic, ethical, and even religious bases of conservation, Wilson
next offers highly practical solutions for saving the remainder of
our natural world.
Wilson wraps this extraordinary presentation with an impassioned
call for cooperation between government, science, and the private
sector--within the inextricable interplay of biology, economics, and
public policy.
