About this product
- DescriptionPart 3, The Tragedy of the Commons, explores the conservation of common-pool or open-access natural resources, such as fisheries, forests, grazing lands, freshwater, and clean air. Part 4, The Evolution of Discounting and Conspicuous Consumption, looks at the problem of explaining why people are so ecologically short-sighted and why people in developed countries consume so many resources. Part 5, Overpopulation and Fertility Declines, addresses the evolution of human reproductive decisions. Part 6, Biophilia, aims to explain why people cherish nature as well as destroy it. The goal of this volume is to introduce environmental thinkers to evolutionary perspectives on human behavior, and the new interdisciplinary sciences of evolutionary psychology and behavioral ecology. This reader aims to help bridge the artificial division between the biological and social sciences, and provide a synthesis between evolutionary sciences of human behavior and environmental sciences.
