Tribute to Garrett Hardin

by Virginia Deane Abernethy

"Throughout his career, Garrett Hardin has been both inspiration and support to innumerable associates and readers who tackle the scientifically and ethically difficult issues of population and environment. Garrett helped us to be clear-sighted and, through example, imparted courage. As we still struggle with the problem of a rapidly-growing U.S. population, many will follow, both knowingly and unknowingly, the paths so heroically blazed by Garrett Hardin."
