These conferences and volumes, then, are built on the premise that the religions of the world may be instrumental in addressing the moral dilemmas created by the environmental crisis. At the same time we recognize the limitations of such efforts on the part of religions. We also acknowledge that the complexity of the problem requires interlocking approaches from such fields as science, economics, politics, health, and public policy.

These edaphic outliers of Piecea-Abies forest extend below their climatic ecotone by as much as 400 m in the Great Smoky Mountains and by 500 m in the central Appalachians."
CONCLUSIONS: "The strong focus of many conservation biologists on immediate recovery of small populations of rare and endangered species diverts attention from the probability that widespread environmental changes in the near future may compound other, more local threats to continued existence of species that are narrowly adapted to specific habitats. . .
