Between 1500 and 1700 an incredible transformation took place. Incipient Species: one about to become genetically isolated from its species of origin. By 1948, the state of the world showed that our holocaust against the life of natural systems undermined 85 percent of the American wilderness as well as those that lived harmoniously with it. If earlier societies tried to foster a belief in the virtues of cooperation and caring, thereby giving an ethical meaning to social life, modern society fosters a belief in the virtues of competition and egotism, thereby divesting human association of all meaning — except, perhaps, as an instrument for gain and mindless consumption.

Clear-Cutting: removing all the trees from a given area; a destruction of entire forests at a time. Secondary brush is usually a more immediate problem with foliar applied herbicides than soil applied herbicides because herbicide deposition decreases significantly below the overstory trees with foliar applied herbicides. Rangelands may not be well known, but they are extremely important and provide multiple, tangible benefits to the environment, wildlife, and local communities.... [tags: Environmental Management, Ecology] Government as a Living Organism - Within the American system of government, there is an innate need for a structure or agency that develops strategy and maintains power. “Ecology” is a term used to describe living organisms and their interactions between their natural and developed environment and was first applied to the field of public administration by the late Professor John M.

For anarchists and other critics of the predominant social order, a return to self-governing and self-sufficient regional communities is often depicted as liberating and refreshing.

In the face of the very real dislocations brought on by the triumph of industrial capitalism and national unification, völkisch thinkers preached a return to the land, to the simplicity and wholeness of a life attuned to nature's purity. However, Clements the unifier soon became the source of another schism in the fledgling ecology. The history is characterized by periods of significant transformation followed by millions of years of stability. [176] The evolution of the earliest organisms, likely anaerobic methanogen microbes, started the process by converting atmospheric hydrogen into methane (4H2 + CO2 → CH4 + 2H2O).
