The word "conservation" appears to have undergone a considerable change in use and meaning during the twentieth century from the original narrow meaning of "guarding or protecting;" for today we use the word "Conservation" to indicate both the study and the management of the whole complex network of man's natural environment (3).

Bean when he said "Conservation is a way of thinking,"and, "It begins with man himself" (1).
