This chapter summarizes the important points of the book. It argues that habitats invariably have limits to the numbers of each kind of animal they can support. No species, including ours, has proved capable of stabilizing or reducing its total numbers before running into the limits of habitat. The chapter discusses fossil fuels, as well as ranching and sustainable ranching.
