Mollusks (a group of invertebrates that includes snails and clams) leave some of the most complete fossil records of any animal. Michael Foote, an evolutionary biologist at the University of Chicago, and his col- leagues inventoried fossils of mollusks that lived in the ocean around New Zealand over the past 43 million years.

The international discussion on SRH emphasizes an outcome-oriented public health approach but people react to multiple dimensions. Strong pas- sions and intensive debates continue on a range of issues: abortion, adolescent SRH and even family planning.

There currently are calls from some environmental advocates for more aggressive regulatory actions in this area, such as mandated environmental accounting.
