The economics of cattle ranching in eastern Amazonia. SENSR is a tool to create, share and manage a citizen science project running on mobile devices to harness the power of citizen scientists. The Romans did introduce their own form of fruit cultivation but after they left little is known of fruit growing in Britain until the Norman invasion apart from a few scattered references to orchards in Monasteries. [15] There is only one reference to an orchard in the Domesday book; however it is thought that this reflects the commonplace nature of fruit growing on an individual basis rather than as a co-operative pursuit. [16] Trees have played an important part in the spiritual history of most cultures and trees bearing life-foods were always sacred. [17] It is probable that humans in an early stage of civilisation, living a hard life close to nature, constructed no definite philosophy of life that could explain all the phenomena or workings of nature with which they came into contact.

Nick Kim What we think we know, don't know and things that might surprise us about climate change and the environment. The mountain rainforests of Australia’s Wet Tropics are extremely vulnerable to climate change. kara brugman/Flickr A new paper shows 1 in 6 species could be extinct due to climate change, and Australia will be particularly hard hit Life Magazine, May 26, 1941. When they plugged individual species data for vertebrates that depend on the tropical forest for food and shelter and deforestation patterns from 1970 to 2008 into their model, it projected that 80–90% of extinctions caused by previous rainforest loss are yet to come Life Magazine, 19 August 1946. The amazing Amazon rainforest is one of the 28 finalists in the New 7 Wonders of Nature competition. We love these pics!

Although artificial regeneration is more expensive than natural regeneration, the result is usually a more productive stand in a shorter period of time October 2, 1939 - LIFE Magazine. Being so small, the fish can live through even extreme drought, by seeking refuge in the last puddles of the swamp Life Magazine April 11, 1955. The estimate of the Ministry of Forestry for 2004 is only 1.6 million cubic meters. The decline in output is due to a number of causes. These range from the 1997/98 forest fires and recent land use changes, through to unsustainable and illegal logging, which is also contributing to the steady deforestation of East Kalimantan National Geographic: April 1991 (Vol. 179, No. 4). How to successfully apply soil microorganisms in particular restoration projects, however, is an almost empty research field. Whereas fundamental insights in the role of AMF in structuring grassland communities are growing [but see [ 110 ]], it remains largely unknown how these fungi contribute to successful restoration and the few available reports on the effects of large scale inoculations in grasslands did result in contradictory conclusions (White et al. [ 111 ]vs National Geographic Magazine; Volume LXVII, No. 4, April 1935 (The National Geographic Magazine, Volume LXVII). That way it becomes a major concern to all politicians and they are forced to do something about it. There's one problem that President Jagdeo omits to mention - everybody's tired of hearing about rainforest deforestation. It's been going on for so long that we've become desensitised to it and the media has understandably lost interest too Salmon in the Trees: Life in Alaska's Tongass Rain Forest.

The heavy machinery and fallen trees cause the ground to be heavily compacted. By packing the soil tight together, the forest's chance for regeneration is reduced ( Waste.org, 1994 ) THE NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE Vol.32, July to December 1917. Agency for International Development (USAID). The program aims to strengthen the NGOs' organizational management skills, improve the planning and implementation of major projects (including grant writing, budget preparation, evaluation and monitoring) and increase the NGOs' capacity for collecting, archiving and distributing information National Geographic Magazine, January - June, 1922, Vol. 41. The researchers say their findings provide support for policies that minimize forest loss and promote forest restoration. Rain forests are the largest terrestrial carbon sinks on Earth, as the BBC News recently reported, and deforestation is estimated to account for 20 percent of all carbon emissions, which play a major role in climate change. "We should continue to actively promote protection of old-growth forests as well as to promote natural forest regeneration."

But other scientists, including some of Dr. Wright’s closest colleagues, disagree, saying that forceful protection of rain forests is especially important in the face of threats from industrialized farming and logging. The issue has also set off a debate over the true definition of a rain forest. How do old forests compare with new ones in their environmental value? Is every rain forest sacred? “Yes, there are forests growing back, but not all forests are equal,” said Bill Laurance, another senior scientist at the Smithsonian, who has worked extensively in the Amazon The National Geographic Magazine February 1946.

Forests provide habitats for a wide range of animals and organisms Jungles/Tropical Rain Forests II (Novel Units - Learning Centers). The units are energy per unit area per unit time. Ecological succession is the gradual change in the composition of a community with time in an ecosystem. If succession occurs in a lifeless area it is primary succession. It can start after things such as volcanoes, fire or flood. The process is usually goes: lichen, moss, ferns, flowerings plants, conifers. For example on the Volcan Osorno in south Chile after ash covers the ground: mosses spread over the ash National Geographic Magazine, February 1970.

Second, among the many human drivers of environmental change, road building is one of the most readily amenable to policy modification. In practical terms, it is far easier to cancel or relocate a road project than it is to, say, reduce human overpopulation or halt harmful climate change. Finally, if we hope to maintain intact tropical forests and their vital ecosystem services and biodiversity, then we simply must get serious about tropical roads LIFE Magazine - March 30, 1959.
