Management, Biosecurity, and Environment (Transcript)

I think all of us have to recognize that the work we do is extremely serious. And we dont have a lot of time to do it. According to the FAO and the world population charts, if you look at the world population of humans, from the year 600 on, we passed year 1800 before there were a billion of us on earth (Figure 1). Im struck that my parents, who are aging, and were born right after the turn of the century, are the first generation since Adam and Eve to see the world population triple in their lifetime. Anyone born before 1962 have lived through the doubling of our species.
