This volume represents the proceedings of a symposium on "Human Population and the Environmental Crisis" held at the University of California, Los Angeles, in October 1993 and convened by the IGPP Center for the Study of Evolution and the Origin of Life (CSEOL). The expertise of the seven symposium speakers, each of whom contributed a chapter to this book, spans the broad scope of the population-environmental problem. Each chapter focuses on a definable aspect of the problem and each emphasizes a particular perspective. Because of the interdisciplinary nature of this work, it should be of special interest to the lay public and serve as a textbook for college courses on population and the environment.
