The interaction of human population, food production, and biodiversity protection.

Abstract

Research suggests that the scale of human population and the current pace of its growth contribute substantially to the loss of biological diversityThe total diversity of all organisms and ecosystems at various spatial scales (from genes to entire biomes). (IPCC). Although technological change and unequal consumption inextricably mingle with demographic impacts on the environment, the needs of all human beings—especially for food—imply that projected population growth will undermine protection of the natural world. Numerous solutions have been proposed to boost food production while protecting biodiversityThe total diversity of all organisms and ecosystems at various spatial scales (from genes to entire biomes). (IPCC), but alone these proposals are unlikely to staunch biodiversity lossBiodiversity is the degree of variation of life. This can refer to genetic variation, species variation, or ecosystem variation within an area, biome, or planet. Terrestrial biodiversity tends to be highest near the equator, which seems to be the result of the warm climate and high primary .... An important approach to sustaining biodiversityBiodiversity is the degree of variation of life. This can refer to genetic variation, species variation, or ecosystem variation within an area, biome, or planet. Terrestrial biodiversity tends to be highest near the equator, which seems to be the result of the warm climate and high primary ... and human well-being is through actions that can slow and eventually reverse population growth: investing in universal access to reproductive health services and contraceptive technologies, advancing women’s education, and achieving gender equalityWomen and children are particularly vulnerable to extreme weather events are most likely to be affected strongest by all impact of climate change, for example women who traditionally are responsible for fetching water..
