dc.description.abstractThe serious human problems related to the population explosion are human ecological problems, and their solutions require judicious use of basic ecological principles. Most unfortunately, however, such principles are frequently either unknown, or not utilized, by those in authority within our world societies. A few of these principles are herein discussed, especially as they relate to the establishment of organic communities. The initial establishment of such communities is characterized by stresses so great and varied that death is the rule and survival the exception. A world-wide human community is currently being established and, if man again follows his animal instincts, he will experience death on a scale beyond current imagination. It is therefore proposed that a massive ecological research program be established concerning man of planet earth. Hopefully such a program would provide a sufficient understanding of man that he would develop in a constructive rather than a destructive manner.en_US
