Description: 
From at least the time man first controlled fire he has made use of land and water, plants and animals, and has encroached on the natural balance of his universe. Now increases in population and developments in technology threaten that balance, and there is a special urgency to define the problems of nature conservation and to find solutions to them. This book is a stocktaking of the natural resources of the Pacific region, resources subject to competing demands. To establish their most effective use thus requires evaluation in social and scientific, economic and political terms. The authors of this book include some of the world's leading experts in nature conservation and related resource-use problems. The problems they write about - conservation in relation to other uses, fauna conservation in relation to flora conservation, conservation of wide-ranging groups, conservation on oceanic and offshore islands, restoration after mining- and the solutions they suggest are of fundamental and challenging importance.
