Humans: a species beyond limits
This chapter examines what is necessary to fulfill the requirements of management, specifically that of avoiding abnormal human participation within ecosystems and the biosphere. This chapter also provides examples of management questions, guiding information, and goals or policy that are all consonant (i.e., match, are consistent and isomorphic). These examples show how consonance between science and management dissolves the barriers between them and makes conversion of information unnecessary. Some of the questions posed in previous chapters are answered; new management questions are posed and answered. This chapter provides measure of human abnormality to reveal the staggering immensity of the problems we face and the goals to be sought in solving them.
