ESEP THEME SECTION
The ethics of human impacts and the future of the earth’s ecosystems
Idea: K.I. Stergiou
Editors: D. Pauly and K.I. Stergiou
An important contribution of the International Ecology Institute (ECI) to science is the publication of the Excellence in Ecology book series authored by the ECI Prize laureates. The ECI prize is awarded to ecologists who are distinguished by outstanding and sustained scientific achievement, and are therefore some of the most important marine, terrestrial and limnetic ecologists of our time. In each book, the author is encouraged to present personal insights, freely criticize, and to formulate new scientific concepts. In this Theme Section (TS), a selection of these authors present their thoughts on the ethics of our impact on, and the future of, the earth's ecosystems, each contributing an essay from their own field of specialization. The TS covers a wide range of issues from allergic sensitization and microbe diversity to the capacity of our planet to support humans.
