Environmental dilemmas : ethics and decisions by R. J Berry( Book )

18 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This text is by people - most of them scientists - who have had to make environmental decisions. Despite popular rhetoric, our environment is not simply a jewel to be cossetted nor a resource to be plundered; it is something to be managed responsibly for everyone's sake. The authors of the case- studies in this collection set out the factors that they have had to consider in devising actions which will affect the environment. The book is not a description of decision-making theory (only one of the authors is a professional philosopher), nor is it an apology for cynical pragmatism; it is an account of the factors that had to be weighed in making decisions about the air we breath, about energy sources, land use, animal welfare, commercial profit and so on. The authors are all committed environmentalists who have had to translate their principles into practice. They tell of the practical problems of maintaining their principles whilst producing answers to real problems.; This is a book for managers, historians, sociologists, but above all for environmental scientists forced to make decisions on imperfect or incomplete evidence.; This book should be of interest to ecologists, environmental scientists/planners and managers, conservationists and philosophers interested in environmental ethics
Inheritance and natural history by R. J Berry( Book )

10 editions published between 1977 and 1990 in English and held by 326 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ever wondered why primroses have three sorts of flowers; or about pesticide resistance in rats and mice, mosquitoes and green-fly; antibiotic resistance in disease organisms ' all are examples of genetical adjustment, explained in this book. This absorbing book is about genetics as it applies to the world around us. Its main aim is to show the ways in which inherited variation can help to explain the properties of natural populations: the differences between individuals, the extent and mechanism for transmitting characteristics from one generation to another, and the factors which control the frequency of a trait in a local group. It is thus of interest not only to naturalists but also to farmers and gardeners - indeed it is highly relevant to each one of us in the context of modern social planning. Professor Berry's explanations, combining laboratory techniques for the biochemical study of changes in cells, an understanding of modern genetics, and field observations by himself and others, are addressed not just to the earnest student but to all those who wonder why people or organisms differ - why snails are striped; why mice have longer tails in Scotland than in England; why primroses have three sorts of flowers; or about melanic forms of moths, spiders and ladybirds in industrial areas; pesticide resistance in rats and mice, mosquitoes and green-fly; antibiotic resistance in disease organisms - all examples of genetical adjustment. Illustrated with 110 drawings, 12 colour and 19 black and white photographs

Ecology and the environment : the mechanisms, marring, and maintenance of nature by R. J Berry( Book )

7 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ecology and the Environment: The Mechanisms, Marring, and Maintenance of Nature is the ninth title published in the Templeton Science and Religion Series, in which scientists from a wide range of fields distill their experience and knowledge into brief tours of their respective specialties. In this volume, R.J. Berry, a well-known leader in the field of ecology, describes the basic concepts in ecology and seeks to put them into a general context for a reader who lacks any scientific background. Berry explores the implications of these basic concepts and how they affect human life and the decisions we have to make, both as individuals and as members of a species which has colonized and influenced every part of the globe. He points out that we are a part of the animal world, but at the same time we are apart from it, and he makes it clear that how we relate to our environment affects the quality of our life--indeed it may affect our very survival. Going well beyond a simple introduction of concepts, the book goes on to explore wider questions about the nature of humanity and how human ecology relates to humanness. Berry proposes that we are more than machines or even advanced apes--we are Homo divinus, transformed from an organism descended from the same stock as the apes but qualitatively different and able to relate to a creator God. The book argues that those who conclude otherwise are neglecting relevant data
