Abstract
  • Mankind is facing the spectre of a planet stripped of the resources necessary to sustain the human populations that currently exist-not to mention those unborn multitudes which seem certain to he added in the coming decades. Time is rapidly run­ning out for scientists and engineers to find new resources to supply demands for the myriad of components necessary to sustain the global economy and to ensure a rea­sonable standard of living. The next 50 years will witness a more thorough examination of the natural resource inventory of the planet than has ever been attempted before. The search for renewable resources and the development of technologies to enhance them will certainly he major preoccupations in the future. Scientists, engineers, and industrialists will need to join hands more frequent!:, to examine potentials for enhancing supplies of raw materials wherever they can he found. This volume repre­sents a first step in examining an untapped renewable resource-the marine plant bio­mass of the Pacific Northwest Coast. This book grew out of a symposium convened on March 2, 1977 at Salishan Lodge, Gleneden Beach, Oregon. Participating in this conference were 49 scholars with many years of experience in disciplines which were pertinent to a balanced study of this resource. The authors who contributed to this volume were drawn from a broad spectrum of fields including oceanography, marine botany, engineering, ge­ology, business, law, government, and education. The symposium was sponsored by Oregon State University with financial support from the Pacific Northwest Regional Commission which is headed by the governors of the States of Washington, Oregon, and Idaho.
