had great diffi culty fi nding a title for this book. For long, the working title was
Genetic Variation and Extinction. However, this title implies a causal and simple
relationship between genetic variation and extinction. I do think that the study
of genetic variation is extremely important for conservation biology but, as will
become apparent while reading the text, I am not as sure that this relationship is
as simple and straightforward as I thought when I began this voyage.

Committed to ensuring the long-term conservation and sustainable use of fishery resources in the South Pacific Ocean and in so doing safeguarding the marine ecosystems in which the resources occur;
Recalling relevant international law as reflected in the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea of 10 December 1982, the Agreement for the Implementation of the Provisions of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea of 10 December 1982 relating to the Conservation and Management of Straddling Fish Stocks and Highly Migratory Fish Stocks of 4 December 1995 and the Agreement to...
By playing a role in the near-annihilation of a species, Theodore Roosevelt,
the president of the United States at the turn of the twentieth century, unwittingly
laid the groundwork for the most dramatic triumph yet in the use
of artificial insemination (AI) to rescue a species from extinction.
In the early 1900s, waves of immigrants from Europe settled in the
American Midwest. As humans transformed the land, they declared war
on a perceived pest: the prairie dog.
A biography of a nationally-known husband and wife team of environment activists, who pioneered efforts to understand the relationship between environment, population growth, and immigration in the United States.
The energy crisis of the mid 1970’s gave birth to a
movement to conserve energy. Over the ensuing years
much has been done to reduce the energy consumption
of new and existing buildings. Lighting efficiency has
improved so much that today we use ½ the wattage
without sacrificing lumens. Improved construction
methods, better insulation and high efficiency windows
have also helped reduce energy consumption.
However, all of these measures have resulted in a
reduction of Sensible heat gains while Latent heat gains
The main audiences and stakeholders who must be engaged for programs to be effective in
changing food marketing to children reflect the societal sectors most closely associated with
food, marketing, and health:
The food and beverage industry could take several actions to address its role in the childhood
obesity epidemic. First, food and beverage marketers should take steps to avoid using
promotional tactics that attract children to unhealthy eating. The industry should research and
adopt a code ...
We conducted our audit of compliance in accordance with U.S. generally accepted auditing standards;
the standards applicable to financial audits contained in Government Auditing Standards, issued by the
Comptroller General of the United States; and OMB Circular A-133, Audits of States, Local Governments,
and Non-Profit Organizations.
The concept of 'biotech' or 'biotechnology' encompasses a wide range of procedures (and history) for modifying living organisms according to human purposes — going back to domestication of animals, cultivation of plants, and "improvements" to these through breeding programs that employ artificial selection and hybridization. Modern usage also includes genetic engineering as well as cell and tissue culture technologies.

The exact relations between science and technology in particular have been debated by scientists, historians, and policymakers in the late 20th century, in part because the debate can inform the funding of basic and applied science. In the immediate wake of World War II, for example, in the United States it was widely considered that technology was simply "applied science" and that to fund basic science was to reap technological results in due time.

The information compiled in this report reflects evidence collected from
WHP policies in high-income countries, primarily within the European
and North American regions. The scarcity of information and case
studies from low- and middle-income countries was highlighted as an
important gap in the current knowledge that needs to be addressed.
Despite the limits of the available evidence, all stakeholders are
encouraged to develop and implement WHP policies and programmes
tackling unhealthy diets and physical inactivity....
