Are there any good studies done on population growth and species loss?

    This one isn’t quite peer reviewed or scientific, but its an article: http://redpath-museum.mcgill.ca/Qbp/3.Conservation/impacts.htm

    This website has some information about the correlation between population growth and species loss. The study points out that never in the 600 million year history of life on earth has a large animal (ie humans) been the dominant species. Earth’s carrying capacity is unknown, but it’s possible that it has already been surpassed. The rash of plant and animal extinctions are being directly caused by the huge impact humans have on the ecosystem. If the ecosystem were not changing at such a rapid rate, species that might have survived an extinction now have little chance of continuing on as a species.
