  • "The Arguments of Agriculture is a delightful read for both the specialist and the person just getting to know the increasingly contested terrains of agricultural policy and ideology.

  • I n 1962, a book invited its readers to imagine an American town “where all life seemed to live in harmony with its surroundings . . . The town lay in the midst of a checkerboard of prosperous farms, with fields of grain and hillsides of orchards, where, in spring white clouds of bloom drifted above the green fields. In autumn, oak and maple and birch set up a blaze of color that flamed and flickered across a backdrop of pines.”1

  • A preliminary study was carried out in mid 1999 on the status and potential impact of the introduction of exotic fish species in the Mekong Basin. Introductions have been made for four main purposes: aquaculture, stocking into lakes and reservoirs, pest control (mosquito) and the aquarium fish trade. Introductions of exotic species and movements of large quantities of fish for stocking are accompanied by risks to the environment, the possibility of native fish species declining through competition, predation or genetic interference, and the possible spread of disease....

  • The last quarter-century has seen increasing awareness of the interactions between human societies and the natural environment in which they thrive and upon which they depend. This awareness has been heightened by concerns about resource scarcity, environmental degradation, and global environmental issues. The combination of increased awareness of the environment and recognition of the primitive state of much of the nation’s environmental data has led to a widespread desire to supplement U.S. national economic accounts to include natural resources and environmental assets.

  • Reproductive rights advocates have been put in a particularly challenging position because public debate about ART has been dominated by abortion politics. The Religious Right has succeeded in centralizing the discussion on the moral status of the embryo, obscuring a broader set of issues. Put in a defensive position, the reproductive rights movement has, until recently, not had the opportunity to grapple internally with the complexities of ART use, and has tended to fall back on traditional models of individual autonomy and choice. With increasing numbers of U.S.

  • In working with regulated industries over the past eight years, many EPA regulatory reinvention initiatives have recognized an emerging and very real redefinition of the manufacturing landscape.

  • It is now almost 40 years since Roger Tomlinson coined the term geographic information system (GIS), and led the development of the world’s first, the Canada Geographic Information System (CGIS), in the mid-1960s (for a history of GIS see Foresman 1998). Today’s technology would be almost unrecognizable to the pioneers of the 1960s, not only because of the almost unbelievable advances in information technology (IT) that have occurred since then, but also because of dramatic changes in the functionality, appearance, use, and societal context of GIS.

  • There was a movement out of US sovereign bonds, amid net outflows of €2.1 billion and negative revaluations of €3 billion, to close at €45 billion, or 5 per cent of all investments. These negative US revaluations in euro terms were partly driven by the euro depreciating by 2.8 per cent relative to the US dollar over Q1 2012. German government bonds experienced positive net inflows of €0.9 billion and account for €17.4 billion of bond assets, but holdings still remain low relative to UK and US government bond assets. Holdings of Spanish sovereign...

  • The way we design, plan and build our cities and their infrastructure is critical for developing competitive and liveable cities. Cities are already suffering from severe environmental problems, such as pollution, congestion and excessive waste, while the basic needs of hundreds of millions of urban residents are yet to be met. The unprecedented urbanization imposes an even greater challenge for providing adequate housing, energy, water, sanitation and mobility to all. Cities are at a crossroads.

  • MOST OF US are familiar with the observation that house plants placed near a window have branches that grow toward the incoming light. This response, called phototropism, is an example of how plants alter their growth patterns in response to the direction of incident radiation. This response to light is intrinsically different from light trapping by photosynthesis. In photosynthesis, plants harness light and convert it into chemical energy (see Chapters 7 and 8). In contrast, phototropism is an example of the use of light as an environmental signal.

  • Although alcohol is a brain sedative and promotes sleep, it actually reduces the amount of quality rapid eye movement (REM) sleep which we need to be fully rested and increases slow wave sleep. Its sedative effect lessens as the night progresses, arousal from sleep and continued wakefulness being likely to occur when the blood alcohol concentration approaches zero. Like other people, the elderly may have recourse to alcohol and prescribed drugs to help them cope with stress, anxiety and depression.

  • This paper analyses the root causes of rural outmigration, focusing on its economic and social implications. It takes as its starting point the fact that mobility is inherent in human existence. Livelihoods and sociocultural changes are intimately connected with population movements. To understand present and fast-developing trends in human mobility, we examine the origins of migratory movements and discern how such transformations actually affect the natural resource base, as well as how they shape livelihoods and socio-economic/cultural coexistence.

  • This other attachment of Villa-Lobos distanced him from popular music during his first years as a composer. Indeed, popular music was highly disparaged in Rio de Janeiro until 1920; after this date, some scholars and folklorists began to valorize it, part of a movement that would turn it into a symbol of Brazilian nationality. But during the 1910s, when a ‘serious’ musician wished to insult a rival, the kinds of accusation used were expressions like ‘maxixe composer’ or ‘whistler.

  • Marx, it is often assumed, cared only about industrial growth and the development of economic forces. John Bellamy Foster examines Marx's neglected writings on capitalist agriculture and soil ecology, philosophical naturalism, and evolutionary theory. He shows that Marx, known as a powerful critic of capitalist society, was also deeply concerned with the changing human relationship to nature. Marx's Ecology covers many other thinkers, including Epicurus, Charles Darwin, Thomas Malthus, Ludwig Feuerbach, P. J. Proudhon, and William Paley.
