Biodiversity by Edward O Wilson( Book )

6 editions published between 1988 and 1991 in English and held by 1,628 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This important book for scientists and nonscientists alike calls attention to a most urgent global problem: the rapidly accelerating loss of plant and animal species to increasing human population pressure and the demands of economic development. Based on a major conference sponsored by the National Academy of Sciences and the Smithsonian Institution, Biodiversity creates a systematic framework for analyzing the problem and searching for possible solutions

Science, evolution, and creationism by National Academy of Sciences (U.S.)( Book )

8 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 929 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book, a group of experts assembled by the National Academy of Sciences and the Institute of Medicine explain the fundamental methods of science, document the overwhelming evidence in support of biological evolution, and evaluate the alternative perspectives offered by advocates of various kinds of creationism, including "intelligent design." Science, Evolution, and Creationism explores the many fascinating inquiries being pursued that put the science of evolution to work in preventing and treating human disease, developing new agricultural products, and fostering industrial innovations. The book also presents the scientific and legal reasons for not teaching creationist ideas in public school science classes." "Mindful of school board battles and recent court decisions, Science, Evolution, and Creationism shows that science and religion should be viewed as different ways of understanding the world rather than as frameworks that are in conflict with each other and that the evidence for evolution can be fully compatible with religious faith. For educators, students, teachers, community leaders, legislators, policymakers, and parents who seek to understand the basis of evolutionary science, this publication will be an essential resource."--Jacket

Science and creationism : a view from the National Academy of Sciences by National Academy Press (U.S.)( Book )

4 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in English and held by 517 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While the mechanisms of evolution are still under investigation, scientists universally accept that the cosmos, our planet, and life evolved and continue to evolve. Yet the teaching of evolution to schoolchildren is still contentious. In Science and Creationism, The National Academy of Sciences states unequivocally that creationism has no place in any science curriculum at any level. Briefly and clearly, this booklet explores the nature of science, reviews the evidence for the origin of the universe and earth, and explains the current scientific understanding of biological evolution. This edition includes new insights from astronomy and molecular biology. Attractive in presentation and authoritative in content, Science and Creationism will be useful to anyone concerned about America's scientific literacy: education policymakers, school boards and administrators, curriculum designers, librarians, teachers, parents, and students
The hydrogen economy : opportunities, costs, barriers, and R & D needs by National Research Council (U.S.)( Book )

5 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 432 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The National Academies' National Research Council appointed the Committee on Alternatives and Strategies for Future Hydrogen Production and Use in the fall of 2002 to address the complex subject of the "hydrogen economy." In particular, the committee carried out these tasks: Assessed the current state of technology for producing hydrogen from a variety of energy sources; Made estimates on a consistent basis of current and future projected costs, carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, and energy efficiencies for hydrogen technologies; Considered scenarios for the potential penetration of hydrogen into the economy and associated impacts on oil imports and CO2 gas emissions; Addressed the problem of how hydrogen might be distributed, stored, and dispensed to end uses -- together with associated infrastructure issues -- with particular emphasis on light-duty vehicles in the transportation sector; Reviewed the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE's) research, development, and demonstration (RD & D) plan for hydrogen; and Made recommendations to the DOE on RD & D, including directions, priorities, and strategies. - Executive summary

Ensuring safe food : from production to consumption by Committee to Ensure Safe Food from Production to Consumption (U.S.)( Book )

3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 345 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How safe is our food supply? Each year one in every ten Americans has an illness caused by the food they consume. These food-borne illnesses are caused by pathogenic microorganisms, pesticide residues, food additives, and toxic chemicals naturally present in food and in the environment. Recent actions taken at the federal, state, and local levels in response to the increase in reported incidences of food-borne illnesses point to the need to evaluate the food safety system in the United States. This book assesses the effectiveness of the current food safety system and provides recommendations on changes needed to ensure an effective science-based food safety system. Food Safety discusses such important issues as: What are the primary hazards associated with the food supply? What gaps exist in the current system for ensuring a safe food supply? What effects do trends in food consumption have on food safety? What is the impact of food preparation and handling practices in the home, in food services, or in production operations on the risk of food-borne illnesses? What organizational changes in responsibility or oversight could be made to increase the effectiveness of the food safety system? The committee discusses the current trends in risks associated with microbiological, chemical, and physical hazards. The book also considers how changes in technology and food processing might introduce new risks. It is vitally important to determine the most effective structure of responsibility to ensure consumer safety. To that end, the committee makes recommendations on steps for developing a coordinated, unified system for food safety as well as recommendations on the additional research needed. Food Safety will be important for policy-makers, food trade professionals, food producers, food processors, food researchers, public health professionals, and consumers
