When did we first start noticing that biodiversity loss was a bad thing for us all?

    I think a landmark public awareness event that basically had everyone acknowledging the dangers of biodiversity loss was the publishing of Silent Spring in 1962.  Silent Spring is a work by Rachel Carson that chronicles the effects of pesticides on bird populations across the rural United States.  It specifically focused on the effects of DDT and it’s dangers and lethality to local ecosystems.  If you haven’t read it, I would highly recommend it.
