Study Questions for Forestry 23/01/2008 18:45:00 Chapter 1 1. Define conservation:  The protection, preservation, management or restoration of wildlife and  natural resources such as forest, soil and water. 2.Discuss the major themes of the Limits to Growth study.: The Limits to growth study shows that our current path of growth cannot be sustained.  However it  suggest that our paths can be sustained if everyone puts in individual, business, governmental to help slow  down the growth of the world.  It basically claims that with the way we are going at the current population  growth rate possibly in 25 years from now the carrying capacity of the world will be sacrificed as well as our  food supplies. They have found in some places that humans have overstepped the carrying capacity which is  why there are food shortages and overpopulated areas. 4. In which ways are population growth, the resource demand and depletion, and pollution linked?  How can they be unlinked or can they?

These things are all linked because with the increase of population people use more resources up and  come scarcely close to using them all up, and pollution is connected because the more people there are the more  consumption of all types of things which create litter, air pollution from the increase of transportation, water  pollution from plants which provide jobs for people and dump toxic waste into the river that they are so closely  set next to, even if the plants are far from water the pollution they put into the air is returned back to the  water ways and ground by rain which in turn makes acid rain. They cannot be unlinked because if there was no population increase ever resources would not be over  used and therefore wouldn’t create a problem and without people there is no pollutants.  6. Describe four major advances in conservation movement that occurred during the administration of  Franklin Roosevelt. Soil Conservation Service, Prairie States Forestry Project, North American Wildlife and Resource  Conferences, Civilian Conservation Corps. 7. Name five major environmental acts that were passed during the decade of the environment.(1970- 1980) Clean air act of 1970, 1977; National energy act 1978; Clean Water Act of 1977; Endangered Species  Act 1973;Resource recovery act of 1970
