    About the Author

    Arnold J. Bloom received his undergraduate degree in Physics from Yale University. He spent several years developing computer models of the spread of air pollution over cities in the USA and Germany. He received a Ph.D. in Biological Sciences from Stanford University, where he also completed a two-semester course in Environmental Legislation at the Law School. He conducted postdoctoral research at the University of Alaska, Fairbanks. He has been on the faculty of the University of California at Davis for thirty years. His publications range from major reviews on the economics of resource allocation in plants to the future of agriculture under rising carbon dioxide levels.
