Talk by F. Fraser Darling D.SC., Ph.D. ,
A climax state in biological terms is a stable community or association of living things-plant and animal—occupying a given habitat such as forest or prairie. A climax is so integrated that it is a natural system which does not lose energy but conserves it. In this talk Dr. Fraser Darling describes how civilised man breaks climaxes to exploit resources and creates problems of his own existence which he has not yet solved.
