By extension, images of a degraded natural landscape may induce negative emotions. Past studies have noted that the composition of tree gardens depends greatly on socio-economic conditions and strategies, but few architectural analyses have been employed to compare home garden characteristics with natural arrangements of flora species common in the area. Table 1 illustrates the discrepancies between the GIS-derived and Weigand's figures for each country. The sampling and processing takes about an hour.

Vines have long attracted naturalists and story-tellers, yet despite the contributions of Darwin (1867) and other 19th Century biologists to the study of vines, it wasn�t until fairly recently that ecologists turned their attention to this important group of plants. The earliest example he gives is the improvement in hunting techniques in the Upper Paleolithic era, around fifteen thousand years ago. Actually the concern should not be about losing a few plants and animals; mankind stands to lose much more.

Whether forests and reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation would even be mentioned in the Paris climate agreement was in doubt until fairly late in the negotiation process. The character of the Australian sclerophyllous forests changed in response to more than 38,000 years of burning by the Aboriginal people, and the range of these forests was expanded at the expense of broad-leaved forests. Deforestation and drought interact in one other pernicious way: fire. “If you have a forest next to a pasture or agricultural field, weeds and grass get in,” Davidson said. “That creates more of a fuel load that allows fire to spread.” And once these forests start burning, we start to see nasty feedback loops. “The more often these droughts and fires come through, the more [tree] mortality there is, and you get a situation where the canopy is no longer closed,” Davidson said.

My criticism of theories that assign a hegemonic role to the proletariat in the struggle for an anarchist society — generically denoted by labour historians as ‘proletarian socialism’ — is simply that they are obsolete. The teaching guide contains informative essays on relevant issues, specific background information on plants and animals, detailed lesson plans, a scope and sequence chart for the lessons, and answers to student questions.
