Reflections on Earth Day, Blackberry Bushes, & Biodiversity

As pointed out above, there are five categories into which the problems of population growth can be sorted: 1) Land abuse and loss of productivity; 2) Depletion of necessary natural resources and conflict over obtaining new sources; 3) Inability to grow enough food, which leads to hunger and famine; 4) Social, economic, and security crises and threats; and 5) Harm to wild Nature and loss of biodiversity. We have grouped resources into these five categories and into a general overview of population problems category. Our overriding emphasis is on category five, the harm to wild Nature. For the other categories we include only the most important resources. Please send us suggestions for additional Resources, especially for Biodiversity Loss.

“The massive growth in the human population through the 20th century has had more impact on biodiversity than any other single factor.”

Biodiversity, Conservation and Management must constantly adapt to retain its salience in policy and society. This requires researchers and practitioners trained in the biological, social and political dimensions of conservation and with the ability to think flexibly and innovatively at the intersection of theory, policy and action.

McGlade also mentioned that there is a map of Europe made of butterflies on the front of EEA building. A small survey showed that people passing by did not understand why an environmental agency would have biodiversity on the building. The link between 'environment' and 'biodiversity' is just not obvious to the average citizen. People's disconnection from nature was mentioned often as a challenge for communicating biodiversity. I would add that the connection of highly-positioned people to local level people and the general public might be even more crucial for reaching nature conservation goals.

As I see it, the mingling and the mixing of race is a sign that we're evolving toward a higher, more integrated state as a culture. This is reflected in the fact that, as the French theologian Teilhard de Chardin put it, "union differentiates." The smaller the differences are between people, the more they insist on them. Anthropologists have long observed that as people and cultures evolve, they become more and more distinctive. They don't shed the qualities that make them unique, instead they refine and accentuate them. Diversity appears to be a function of social evolution.

BCM is one of the leading inter-disciplinary conservation post-graduate degrees. The syllabus focuses on the dynamic landscape of scientific, social, technological, economic and environmental change that is creating new demands on biodiversity science and policy but which is also generating new thinking and innovation. It is a forward looking syllabus that will equip you with the conceptual tools to think across disciplinary boundaries, ask the right questions and know a rigorous answer when you find it.
