- The growth of human populations is strongly influenced by social and cultural factors which are much less important in other species. For all that, Homo Sapiens is an animal and many aspects of his relationship with is environment, with other species, and with other members of his own species, should be open to biological analysis. From the scope of the papers printed here it is clear that the analysis will extend into most aspects of biology and that will shed light not only on the reproductive habits of man but also on those of his domestic animals, parasites, and pests.
