Tropical Grazing Land Ecosystems (Natural Resources

Format: Hardcover Language: English Format: PDF / Kindle / ePub Size: 11.17 MB Downloadable formats: PDF Today our global environment is being stressed by many different factors, including habitat destruction, pollution, invasion of non-native species, global warming, and depletion of the ozone layer. At each site, we surveyed species richness of trees, herbs, epiphytic understory bryophytes, lower-canopy beetles, lower-canopy ants, leaf-litter ants, trap-nesting bees and wasps, and their antagonists. Why did the Native Americans never harness the power of cows, oxen, or horses? (more…)...

Race to Save the Tropics: Ecology And Economics For A

Format: Paperback Language: English Format: PDF / Kindle / ePub Size: 5.80 MB Downloadable formats: PDF In the 1960s an ecological research effort, the International Biological Program, sought to characterize the structure and function of major biomes through intense study. Different trees live in different forests. You will find Evergreens in Acadia National Park in Maine, Palm Trees in the Rain Forest, and the Boabab in Madagascar. This ecosystem is largely formed by sandy lands, covered with different physiognomies due to the variety of micro-reliefs and regimens of flood. (more…)...

Water Hyacinth in Africa: A Survey of Problems and Solutions

Format: Paperback Language: English Format: PDF / Kindle / ePub Size: 6.73 MB Downloadable formats: PDF It is interesting that within the Polylepis forest there is a noticeable drop in plant diversity compared to the surrounding grass páramo (páramo species are probably shade intolerant), and furthermore that certain plants grow only under Polylepis. During the glacial intervals of the past two million years—the Ice Ages of the Northern Hemisphere—habitats suitable to cold-adapted biota covered much larger areas than they do today, and considerable migration of cold-adapted plants and animals occurred.

Commercial logging companies cut down mature trees that have been selected for their timber. Most of them live in tree bark, decomposing dead plant matter, or mossy areas. Grasses in these areas have very deep roots that remain unharmed during fires, rapidly sending up new shoots once the rains return. Increased silt can also block important shipping lanes. (more…)...

Format: Hardcover Language: English Format: PDF / Kindle / ePub Size: 10.72 MB Downloadable formats: PDF Non-native, introduced, alien or invasive species are plants, animals, diseases or other organisms transferred unnaturally from one ecosystem to another, either intentionally or unintentionally. Decomposers are living things that get their energy from the waste materials of other organisms. Tropical grasslands are dominated by grasses, often 3 to 6 feet tall at maturity. As a resultant, the rainforest is the most luxuriant vegetation system in the world. Ecological Applications contains ecological research and discussion papers that develop the basic scientific principles on which environmental decision-making...
