Fifty years apart and from opposite coastal lines and ranges, these two writers attempt to capture in words the electrifying intensity of the commercial commodification of Wild Nature with plenty of angst and even some naked bodily celebration, if not without some Puritan guilt. This time, I collected some animals to hopefully work on their population genetics: I am curious about the relatedness among the populations from different watersheds along the Dempster Highway (by the way, I am seeking collaborators [phylogeographers!] for this work… If interested, let me know!) I have left my PhD student Shaun Turney up in the Yukon (along with his field assistant) where he is working on characterizing the arthropod-based food webs along the latitudinal gradient of the Dempster Highway.

In the red-spined stickleback, the male attacks other males that invade his nesting territory. Katie Moriarty, postdoctoral research wildlife biologist for the U. Originating from different roots, especially natural history and physiology, it soon developed into different specialities, such as animal and plant ecology, which at first developed at least partly independently from each other. Mankind-that is to say we-shall find ourselves drifting aimlessly toward a state incompatible with the maintenance of the humanistic values from which we derive our uniqueness, unless we formulate goals worthy of they human condition, and are willing to take a stand at the critical time.

The majority of accidental introductions may fail, however, once an introduced species becomes established, its population growth is explosive. Climate: average atmospheric conditions over a long time interval. If not, it should give you some reasons to expand your outlook and encourage you to accept observation-based research as 'real' science."

Sustainable development is more than making the world function smoothly with no difficulties.

Merophytes: groups of cells that all originate from one cell. Hoffmeyer (1996a: 143) emphasises: "it is hard to see how ecology can be our guide and mentor in managing nature when it keeps splitting the world up into two distinct sectors - the natural and the cultural - thereby upholding all of the emotional superstructure, all the illusions, that alienate us from nature." A natural contract self-consciously guaranteeing the rights of symbiosis would offer a mutually beneficial alternative to the parasitic relationship that collective humanity now holds with Nature in its totality.
