Chaired by Roger Levien, the committee provided guidance for AAAS Population, Resources, and Environment Program (PREP) activities. The initiative was prompted by the prospect of an increase in the world's population from . billion in 1984 to between . and 1. billion by 2050. PREP addressed the problems and opportunities that arise through interactions among population, resources, and environment, while stressing interdisciplinary approaches, international cooperation, and the application of scholarship to public policy issues.

The AAAS Atlas of Population and Environment is an important analysis of the relationships between human population and the environment. Illustrating through text, maps, and diagrams how population factors such as rates of growth, density, movement, and resource consumption, along with the use of certain technologies, affect the world's ecosystems and natural resources both in the short and long term, the Atlas brings together a wealth of information from the most up-to-date sources. In view of the profound significance of these issues as we enter the new century, this accessible resource will be an invaluable tool for individuals, academics, governments, and corporations.The Atlas draws on research and data from a number of academic institutions and international organizations, including the United Nations, its specialist organizations and agencies; the World Resources Institute; the Center for International Earth Sciences Information Network; Oak Ridge National Laboratory; U.S. Geological Survey; and the UNEP-World Conservation Monitoring Centre. Using sophisticated mapping and graphic techniques, it provides quantitative analyses of the important links between such factors as human population density, rates of growth, migration, resource consumption, and technologies, and the state of the global environment. While the impact of people on the environment may have seemed intuitively obvious in the past, the Atlas makes accessible a wealth of badly needed empirical evidence that will be invaluable for both specialists and general readers.This pathbreaking book tackles the difficult job of connecting the social and natural sciences to provide a thorough analysis of the interplay between population and the environment. Its interdisciplinary approach brings a unique comparative perspective to the discussion and makes it pertinent to a broad range of disciplines.

This book is an excellent introduction to environmental issues from the standpoint of population and its impact on the environment.
It has interesting case studies from around the globe and engaging illustrations that really convey an understanding of the state of the world. However, I would have liked to see a more prescriptive section with recommendations for action as well.
I recommend checking out the table of contents on the "Look inside" link, because the TOC is very representative in this book's case. I also recommend checking out World Resources 2000-2001, the companion book to Bill Moyers' series "Earth on Edge." It's perhaps a bit more engaging although not as focused on population.

I'm a science journalist, and have no shortage of access to excellent science and excellent reference sources on a huge range of topics. But after finding a copy of this in my organization's library, I went out of my way to buy my own copy, and it will have a critical place in my personal reference library for a long time.

The range of topics is excellent, the maps and information graphics are (for the most part) very well done, and the text succinctly summarizes key science in a broad range of subject areas.

Definitely worth the price -- I'm thrilled to have this.
