Notes and links on environmental ethics

For some time, I’ve been collecting some wide-ranging information and weblinks on the subject of environmental ethics. Perhaps some of this information might be useful to students in conservation, ecology, peace and justice work, debates about viewpoints on creationism vs. evolution, etc. I especially recommend anyone interested in arguments on these subjects to take a look at some of the following sources.

I also recommend that anyone interested in these topics take a look at the background of just a few “practitioners” from several disciplines – E.O. Wilson, Holmes Rolston III, J. Baird Callicott, and Michael Rosenzweig. Brief biographies of several of these people are found below, with links describing their scholarly activities.

Some useful links:
