About this product
- Description<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC -//W3C//DTD HTML 3.2//EN > The world's species, genes, and ecosystems are going extinct at an alarming and unprecedented rate, largely as a result of human activities. If this trend continues, human civilization itself is at risk. Yet we remain either unaware or unconcerned. In Biodiversity and Democracy, Paul Wood looks at this dilemma from ather perspective. He argues that the problem can be traced back to how we think about both biodiversity and democratic societies. He examines the concept of biodiversity, recasting it as an essential environmental condition that is being irreversibly depleted, t a biological resource that can simply be replaced. He then demonstrates how democratic policies cater to short-term public preferences, with little or concern for the long term.
