The Scent of Jade

National Geographic Magazine, May 1954

Below the overstory, the canopy stretches for vast distances, seemingly unbroken. Despite overlapping tree branches, canopy trees rarely interlock or even touch. Instead, there is some separation from one another by a few feet. Along with branches, the billions of leaves of the canopy act as miniature solar panels, providing the source of power for the forest by converting sunlight to energy through photosynthesis In search of gorillas: Adventure in the rain forest : an interactive story / story by Sharon Katz ; illustrated by Patricia Wynne.

Good mapping information exists for present forest cover and land use in Norway (Aaheim, 19841). In the rain forest zone of southwest Norway an estimated 605,000 ha of land was originally forested; approximately 20% of this is now under agricultural/agro-pastoral use Ecological Sustainability for Non-timber Forest Products: Dynamics and Case Studies of Harvesting (People and Plants International Conservation).

We expected it to be all either all burned up or decomposed over time. It was something of a revelation to see how persistent this stuff was. Q: So what does the removal of large boles portend for the forests of the future? Obviously we have a situation where if you consider the fact that we might in fairly intensive commercial forestry operations, for example, grow more and more smaller stems to get volumes up A Rain Forest Adventure (Newbridge Discovery Links Series, Nonfiction Guided Reading, Set B). As the situation worsened, the government began to recognize the importance of the region and that something had to be done. In the 1980s, the government funded a reforestation program, and scientists designed the model, but they first investigated the socioeconomic situation. The project relied on indigenous knowledge of the Qiang people - -key in conservation of biodiversity - -and their practices of forest management and home-gardening Rain Forests of the World { Complete 11 Volume Set}.

The National Geographic Magazine, October, 1937

For visitors to the Olympic Peninsula, it seems obvious that a temperate rainforest—itself a kind of natural wonder—should be in a national park. As it happens, getting it included proved to be one of the most drawn-out battles in American conservation history, which makes seeing it destroyed all the more bitter National Geographic Magazine, March, 1963 (Vol. 123, No. 3). Speciation is again poor, the major species being Rhizophora mangle, Avicennia nitida, Laguncularia racemosa and Conocarpus erectus. Whereas true mangrove - Rhizophora - only extends as far as the influence of salt water, white mangrove or Avicennia winds deep inland into freshwater areas. Rhizo- phora typica is widespread in the mangroves around Aracaju and Recife on Brazil's Atlantic coast, extending up rivers as far as 20 kilometres (12 miles) inland National Geographic Magazine, January / June 1959 (Vol. 115). They perform reactions using inorganic substances such as nitrates, ammonia and sulphur.

Volunteers are needed to help the South Yuba River Citizens League, based in Nevada City, California, collect monthly water quality data at 45 different sites in the Yuba Watershed.

Similar to the differing perceptions surrounding the rat ceremony in East Flores, the lack of clarity within the practice of augury (interpreting omens from observing the flight of birds) in Borneo shows the ways in which nature and culture are understood and the relationship between the two are conceptualized National Geographic Magazine, August 1965.
