The dominant animal : huma[n] evolution and the environment by Paul R Ehrlich( Visual )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paul Ehrlich talks about t human evolution and environment. "Everything living evolves, but humans evolve culturally as well as biologically, and that puts us in a peculiar relation to the rest of life, with a peculiar responsibilities. If we can understand how cultural evolution works, we'll have a better handle on how to manage our responsibilities. The question that Ehrlich has been exploring lately is wether cultural evolution really does show patterns that would yield predicative theory. how now has data from Polynesian canoes that indicate the answer is yes, cultural evolution is patterned enough to predict with. We can discover a new way to comprehend our own behaviour and perhaps influence it to the benefit of life."

Genetic engineering can be used to develop seeds with enhanced resistance to pests and pathogens; organic farming can manage the overall spectrum of pests more effectively."

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Revive & Restore, with the support of TED and in partnership with National Geographic Society, is convening a day-long conference to showcase the prospects of bringing extinct species back to life, along with a discussion of the ethical issues that will raise. TEDxDeExtinction is a TEDx event that explores a bold topic: reviving extinct species and re-introducing them to the wild. Can it be done responsibly? Should it be done at all? The full-day conference brings together a range of speakers to dive into the emerging idea of de-extinction. In the past two years, longtime TEDsters Stewart Brand and Ryan Phelan have organized two private research workshops to dig into the practical side of the issue, and to explore whether molecular and conservation biologists were interested in working further on the idea. The success of these workshops proved to Brand and Phelan that the idea of de-extinction merited further exploration. Together they have started Revive & Restore as a project within The Long Now Foundation."-- About page (http://longnow.org/revive/tedxdeextinction/about/)
