Beyond Malthus : sixteen dimensions of the population problem by Lester R Brown( Book )

39 editions published between 1998 and 2017 in English and Danish and held by 1,279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This study looks at 16 dimensions or effects of population growth in order to gain a better perspective on how future population trends are likely to affect the human prospect. The evidence gathered here indicates that the rapid population growth prevailing in a majority of the world's countries is not going to continue much longer. Either countries will get their act together, shifting quickly to smaller families, or death rates will rise from one or more [stresses such as AIDS, ethnic conflicts, or water shortages]." The sixteen topics are grain production, fresh water, biodiversity, climate change, oceanic fish catch, jobs, cropland, forests, housing, energy, urbanization, natural recreation areas, education, waste, meat production, and income.

Catch of the day : choosing seafood for healthier oceans by Brian Halweil( Book )

7 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 478 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At a time when international treaties, restrictive quotas, and global regulation of fleets have proven ineffective in protecting beleaguered fish populations, a surprising ally is emerging to tackle the growing fisheries crisis. Buyers of seafood--including individual consumers, school cafeterias, supermarket chains, and large food processors--are choosing to avoid threatened or problematic species in favor of fish that are caught or raised with less impact on the world's oceans. While some seafood lovers are concerned about guaranteeing the future availability of popular fish, others wish to preserve the quality ot today's seafood by knowing more about how and where it is caught. As more of our daily food options originate in factories, fish remains the last wild food we consume in large quantities and one of our few remaining direct connections to the natural world"--Summary (p.5)
