Book Review


Excerpt: The Intergovernmental Conference of Experts on the Scientific Basis for Rational Use and Conservatiori of the Resources of the Biosphere was sponsored by UNESCO and attended by 326 delegates from 63 nations, 11 international organizations, and 14 nongovernmental organizations. For the purposes of discussion, the biosphere was defined as being that part of the planet earth in which life exists. The resources considered were largely restricted to living organisms; inorganic resources were included only insofar as they provide a medium for the support of plant and animal life. Oceanic resources were left to other international conferences for study.
