She is seen is one of the key figures in the debate on conservation biology.[5] The essence of her reasoning is that unlimited population growth and man's unregulated exploitation of natural resources form a serious threat to the environment.[6] Her publications have been a significant source of inspiration to the Club of Rome.[6] By 1993, the Ehrlichs' perspective has become the consensus view of scientists as represented by the "World Scientists' Warning to Humanity".[7][8]

She co-founded the Center for Conservation Biology at Stanford University with Paul Ehrlich, where she serves as policy coordinator after being an associate director from 1987 on.[9][10]
