On a Sustainable Future of the Earth’s Natural Resources is divided into three sections, with individual chapters contributed by experts on diff erent facets of the earth sciences, natural resources management and related issues. The first section focuses on the status of Earth’s resources; land, water, biota and atmosphere.   Earth and environmental science is a critical pillar of sustainable development (Lubchenco et al., , Gill and Bullough, , Omisore, ), meaning Earth and environmental scientists have a strong role to play in discussions on this theme. Their perspectives can inform development priorities, and identify crosscutting themes that inform Cited by: 3.
