This updated third edition of Food, Energy, and Society provides a detailed evaluation of the link between two of the greatest problems faced today: uncontrolled population growth and the damage to our life supporting systems. New material includes the conservation of biodiversity in agricultural, forestry, and marine systems, livestock production and energy use, and the impacts of pesticides on the environment. The authors provide an in-depth discussion of the threat of soil erosion to the food supply and the environment; include coverage of energy inputs of crop production in the developed and developing countries; and explore the topic of water resources, including agricultural systems.
