Hardcover: Pictorial Laminate Boards. This highly accessible book introduces biodiversity as a clear and pressing priority for business and provides an up-to-date briefing on biodiversity issues and concerns for business, students and academics, NGOs, government and regulators, and other interested parties. It outlines practical ase studies from around the world to demonstrate principles and consequences provides a guide for practical decision-making in business (and other organizations). Biodiversity used to be an issue of high acknowledged importance, for example following the Convention on Biological Diversity (introduced at the Rio Summit in 1992) and the UK's first Biodiversity Strategy shortly thereafter. Yet, despite subsequent global commitments to reversing the rate of species loss at the WSSD (Johannesburg 2002) later endorsed by the EU (the Gothenburg Target), the key role of business in achieving a sustainable relationship with biodiversity has received little explicit attention over recent years. The writing of this book was initially demand-led, through requests from large businesses requesting advice from the author (in his private consultancy role) on why biodiversity is important and how to tackle it. The capacities of ecosystems to support continuing human wellbeing including economic viability has, over recent years, diminished in the business arena into more simplistic tools such as ISO140001 and similar measures, while economic and social parameters have increased in profile. A renewed, focused exploration of the direct links between business and biodiversity in a changed and fast-changing world, including its implications and recommendations for appropriate actions, sheds new light on the importance of addressing this crucial vector of sustainable development and suggests novel, self-beneficial responses for business.

In this follow up to his previous book on Hubbert's Peak/Peak Oil, Deffeyes gives us some engrossing info on such subjects as the Alberta tar sands, the Green River oil shale and nuclear power. Out of all the peak oil books I've read so far, this one is the only one that gives a very concise and knowledgable summary on these and other "alternatives" to cheap oil. Most other peak oil writers aren't old school geologists with hydrocarbon strings pumping in their veins instead of blood, so you don't get the feeling they really know what they are talking about. Several books I've read casually dismiss the Alberta tar sands and the Green River oil shale and shouldn't. Deffeyes doesn't. I'm actually a bit more hopeful and optimistic about the world's energy future after reading this book.

Shows how these perturbations affect a variety of other cycles and how other cycles affect them, all combining to affect human welfare.

NOT Book-Club or Ex-Library. 8vo. 272pp. Foreward by H.R.H. The Duke of Edinburgh. Endpaper Maps. Illustrated with Photographs in Color and Maps in black & white. First Ed USA; unstated. Hardback with DJ. This book describes the author’s visit to Brazil to check whether the recommendations by the International Red Cross for the improvement of the Amazonian Indians’ lot had been implemented by the Brazilian Government. To his consternation he discovered that not only had the recommendations been largely ignored but that the whole future of these tribal peoples was being jeopardized for the sake of progress. In return for their gift to the world of cocoa, peanuts, tomatoes, cashew, avocado and quinine, which are all of Amerindian origin, Indian tribes have received only disease, expropriation and death. They have no natural immunity to many of the diseases carried by the white man. Civilization is fast approaching the few remaining uncontacted tribes, and A Question of Survival poses the dilemma which faces Western Civilization and all who adhere to its philosophies: that in the name of progress and technological advance we are destroying all cultures in any way different from our own, even though they constitute the roots from which we have sprung, and without which our own stability and sense of continuity is threatened. It is, therefore, not just a question of survival for the South American Indian that the author is raising, but, by implication, the survival of us all as a species.

The Time Before History.

By Colin. Tudge.

New York, NY Touchstone, January 6, 1997. Paperback First Ed; First Printing indicated. First Ed; First Printing indicated. Very Near Fine in Wraps: shows only the most minute indications of use: just a hint of wear to extremities; mildest rubbing. Binding square and secure; text clean. Very close to 'As New'. NOT a Remainder, Book-Club, or Ex-Library. 8vo. 366pp. Paperback: Pictorial Wraps. This book is engagingly written and enlightening in its content. Its object, to expand our perspective on the history and the impact on the planet of our genus Homo from its beginning about 5 million years ago, could hardly be more timely. Tudge integrates knowledge from the disciplines of geology, anthropology, archaeology, climatology, and even game theory to provide a framework for understanding. Tudge offers a clear explication and illustration of evolutionary principles and mechanisms, in particular his emphasis on the unifying concept of the ecomorph: the outcome of the process by which evolution fits organisms to ecological niches. I like his courage as a non-expert to suggest that the idea of progress may have some usefulness in evolutionary thought. Similarly, Tudge reminds us that whereas Lamarck's fourth law on the inheritance of acquired characteristics should be rightly rejected, his second law, that the production of new organs results from continued environmental pressure in a particular direction, can contribute much to understanding of evolutionary history.
