Cooperation and stability as a basis for environmental ethics

Environmental Ethics 3 (3):219-230 (1981)
Philosophers and ecologists have proposed that ecological principles such as cooperation and ecosystern stability serve as a basis for environmental ethics. Requisite to understanding whether a cooperation based environmental ethic can be taken as an unqualified good is knowledge of the role of cooperation in the context of other interactions between species (e.g., cornpetition), and the significance of such interactions to ecosystem stability. Further, since the key ecological concept of stability has been ambiguously defined, the various definitions need to be understood so that use of scientific information in philosophical discussion is accurate and consistent
