Today In History: The Evolution of the Conservation Movement


Recommended Posts

An interesting piece found within the site here:

 

1919

Stephen A. Forbes, a biologist whose work on the ecology of freshwater ponds has important implications for the future of conservationist thought, and Robert Earle Richardson publish Some Recent Changes in Illinois River Biology, a brief study which raises disturbing questions about the complex impact of reclamation engineering projects and sewage disposal on riverine biology; this work anticipates the kinds of environmental issues which will increasingly preoccupy conservationists later in the century.
