    Book details

'Populations: Growth and Control' is the second title in the 'Deeper Insights' series. The first half of the book deals with the ways in which wild populations grow and stop growing. There are sections on territory, density dependence, niches, and the problems of harvesting and controlling wild populations. The second half of the book focuses on human populations from prehistory to the present time. It covers the topics of human population growth and its many consequences for the Earth's ecology, and for the quality of human life. The 'Deeper Insights' series covers topics in the life sciences that are of particular social interest and significance. The topics are frequently misrepresented or misunderstood in the popular media, yet, in everyday life, they include some fundamentally important and interrelated issues. No prior knowledge is assumed, and the focus is firmly on mainstream science, simply explained. Books in this series are printed in A4 format, with black white illustrations, and are suitable for ages from 12 years to adult. All books in the series include revision questions designed to confirm understanding and consolidate learning. For young teenagers, these books offer a head start for tertiary education. For interested parents, with no background in the life sciences, these little books could present a different view of the world.
