In its brief existence, cultural ecology has proved neither convenient nor conventional for those who have sought to practice it. While slow moving, they are high-level predators and feed on other invertebrates, including mollusks and barnacles. A line connecting places of the same longitude is a meridian. It is not a pristine sanctuary where the last remnant of an untouched, endangered, but still transcendent nature can for at least a little while longer be encountered without the contaminating taint of civilization.

The definitive history of German anti-urbanism and agrarian romanticism argues incisively against this view: Nothing could be more wrong than to suppose that most of the leading National Socialist ideologues had cynically feigned an agrarian romanticism and hostility to urban culture, without any inner conviction and for merely electoral and propaganda purposes, in order to hoodwink the public [. .. ] In reality, the majority of the leading National Socialist ideologists were without any doubt more or less inclined to agrarian romanticism and anti-urbanism and convinced of the need for a relative re-agrarianization. 36 The question remains, however: To what extent did the Nazis actually implement environmental policies during the twelve-year Reich?

Every place always has an ecosystem, and it always will. Changes should usually be incremental so that large mistakes are avoided. With no follow-up brush control treatments, most sites in the cross timbers will eventually become dominated by resprouts and herbicide-resistant woody plants. It lay across the top of all the other webstrings in the circle. Along with the leaves there are also some of the first understorey flowers showing up. Back to (1) For water, see especially Richard Hoffmann, ‘Economic development and aquatic ecosystems in medieval Europe’, American Historical Review, 101 (1996), 631–69; essays in Working with Water in Medieval Europe, ed.

Evolution serves as such a universal theme. While literary and environmental histories tend to bracket these two complementary but antagonistic works from one another, their ideas about nature's agency have become part of a discursive repertoire that informs our current debates about the environment and environmentalism. They too have intensity and intrinsic value, albeit less than that of living organisms. Learning may also improve the foraging efficiency of bluegill sunfish as they age.

I have a lovely four-legged furry friend and enjoy many interests. We strive to live in harmony with Nature locally and globally. My first journal entry was made on February 2,1955, at age IS, and I still maintain a journal to this day, almost 40 years later.2 Although many naturalists have kept extensive journals (e.g., John Terres for over 50 years), I certainly don't mean to imply here that journals are the only, or necessarily the best, way to document natural history phenomena.

Policy will decide to maximize immediate economic growth at the expense of environmental disruption. Tropical forest immigrants then move to new places, where they clear-cut forests in order to farm soil that has not yet lost its fertility. But many teachers of science who have responsibility for teaching units on the environment are unaware of the importance of childhood experiences with nature. You weren't leaving them alone under a mountain for 20 000 years.

It’s not just about freeing white men from the control of the king, and it’s not just about freeing women or blacks anymore. They represent the oldest, the most carefully nurtured, the most elaborately systematized and the most lovingly preserved oral tradition in the annals of the world. Community planning includes energy-efficient buildings, waste water treatment, and growing healthy soils as well as plants. "Without permanent agriculture," writes Mollison, "there can be no possibility of a stable social order."

Winner of the Francis Parkman Prize Changes in the Land offers an original and persuasive interpretation of the changing circumstances in New England's plant and animal communities that occurred with the shift from Indian to European dominance. Indeed, this is the only valid comparison because if someone is vegan for environmental reasons, they will undoubtedly seek out the least damaging sweetener. Physiological ecology looks at the special mechanisms that the individuals of a species use to function and at the limits on species imposed by the environment.

Like other apes, orangutans have a slow life history which makes it difficult for them to recover from severe population losses (6). For most of the year, it’s an unassuming, prickly little shrub, usually less than 1 metre in height. Along the way, expect to have your notions about nature and natural communities challenged and complexified. Buddha said, “This is because that is; this is not because that is not; this is born because that is born; this dies because that dies.” The health of the whole is inseparably linked with the health of the parts, and the health of the parts is inseparably linked with the whole.

If we exploit the environment in extreme ways, even though we may get some money or other benefit from it now, in the long run we ourselves will suffer and future generations will suffer. At the center of this ideological complex is the direct, unmediated application of biological categories to the social realm. Many conclude that I speak of the more common marine animals, such as dolphins and whales.
