Excellence in Ecology: Book 8

A World of Wounds: Ecologists and the Human Dilemma


Paul R. Ehrlich


Department of Biological Sciences, Stanford University, Stanford CA 94305, USA

Recipient of the International Ecology Institute (ECI) Prize 1993 in terrestrial ecology



Professor Paul R. Ehrlich was elected by the ECI Jury chaired by Professor Harold Mooney (Stanford University, California, USA) for his substantial and sustained contributions to the study of population biology. Ehrlich's concern for environmental quality and environmental justice, and his influence on students, the general public and policy makers is unrivaled. His insights have decisively affected our views of population structure and provided guidelines on the conservation of wild populations. Born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA, in 1932, Paul Ehrlich obtained his Ph.D. from the University of Kansas and stayed there as a post-doc until he joined the faculty of the University of Stanford in 1959, where he has been ever since. He has authored several books on the state of the environment and has received numerous international awards, many of them together with his wife Anne.


EE Book 8 presents Paul Ehrlich's view of how ecologists, and virtually all scientists, should contribute to solving the human predicament. Ehrlich draws on a lifetime of experience in field and policy research to describe briefly the deterioration of humanity's life-support systems, and to examine how those professionally most knowledgeable about these systems can work to preserve them.



Books are sold at cost price. A considerable number of books are donated to libraries in less developed countries.
