Item description for Feed or Feedback: Agriculture, Population Dynamics and the State of the Planet by A. Duncan Brown...
Placing agriculture at the forefront of environmental issues, this book argues that every major impact the human species has had on the natural environment has been a result of the change from a hunting and gathering method of food supply to a farming one. Historical information about ecological, environmental, and demographic changes in human society from the advent of agriculture to today is presented. Assessed are rates of deforestation, soil erosion, and water consumption as they relate to agriculture.
