    Consider three hypothetical scenarios * for the levels of human population in the century ahead. Fertility declines within sixty years from the current rate of to a global replacement average of children per woman. The current population momentum would lead to at least 11 billion people before leveling off at the end of the 21st century.. Fertility reduces to an average of Population genetics (ecology) In population genetics a sexual population is a set of organisms in which any pair of members can breed together. This means that they can regularly exchange gametes to produce normally-fertile offspring, and such a breeding group is also known therefore as a also implies that all members belong to the same species.

Deep ecology is an environmental philosophy promoting the inherent worth of living beings regardless of their instrumental utility to human needs, plus a restructuring of modern human societies in accordance with such ideas.

Deep ecology argues that the natural world is a subtle balance of complex inter-relationships in which the existence of organisms is dependent on the existence of others.

Introduction Environmental Biology is a free and open textbook that enables students to develop a nuanced understanding of today’s most pressing environmental issues. This text helps students grasp the scientific foundation of environmental topics so they can better understand the world around them and their impact upon it.

This page is a list of environmental books. In this context they are notable books that describe, as a major theme, the effects of human activity on the environment. Non-fiction is an account or representation of a subject which is presented as fact.

Ecology is the study of how living things interact with each other and their environment. Earlier this year we learned about the levels of organization within an organism: cell-tissue-organ-organ system-organism.

Now we are looking at the levels of organization starting at an individual (i.e., organism) and ending with the biosphere (i.e., earth). Level Courses.
