Workshop

Biogeochemical Cycles and Population Dynamics

calendar
Jul 28th, 1991 - Aug 10th, 1991
location
Aspen

The human population contributes to global change in part through increasing the emission of greenhouse gases. This increase is partially a function of the growth in size and productivity of the human population. Population size and productivity are intricately intertwined through both technologies and social organization. The workshop focused on how to reconcile the growing awareness of the ecological threats posed by modern agriculture and a growing human population with the benefits of the industrial revolution and modern agriculture and considered the potential willingness and mobilization of the world community to address related threats. Among specific topics discussed were: human alteration of biogeochemical cycles by human activity on a global scale (sulfur, nitrogen, carbon), and strategies for sustained development.
