New ideas on nature conservation. By A.Yablokov, S.Ostroumov (seconds ago)



by Professor K.
Excellent book. New useful system of facts, ideas on nature conservation. The full and
more correct reference is:
Yablokov A.V., Ostroumov S.A. Levels of Living Nature Conservation. 1985. Nauka
Press. Moscow. 176 p. DOI: 10.13140/2.1.1679.9366.
The book presented a fresh, unique and innovative approach to analysis of issues of
nature conservation. The authors invented a new productive conceptualization of the
new science of conservation biology. They proposed and used a very efficient
approach. This approach is based on the concept of levels of organization of living
systems. As a result, the authors, prominent biologists, transformed a huge mass of
facts on anthropogenic effects on nature (man-made impact on living organisms, the
biota, the biosphere) into a well-organized system of scientifically treated data.
The book presented also a unique system of axioms of nature conservation.
The book was translated into some other languages.
The citation of this book is excellent.
This unique, innovative book was ahead of its time, it will be useful to many who are
involved and interested in nature conservation and environmental protection. It is really
very useful and recommended to scientists, professors and students.
