Glossary of "Environmental Science: Earth as a Living Planet (2nd ed.)" by Botkin & Keller (1998)

  • An argument for the conservation of nature on the grounds that a species, an ecological community, an ecosystem, or the Earth's biosphere provides specific functions necessary to the persistence of our life or of benefit to life. The ability of trees in forests to remove carbon dioxide produced in burning fossil fuels is such a public benefit and an argument for maintaining large areas of forests.
