Nearly 60% of the total groundwater extracted is withdrawn from overexploited aquifers. In Guns, Germs, and Steel Jared Diamond presents the biologist's answer: geography, demography, and ecological happenstance. Does this imply much lower disturbance rates in Africa that favour longer-lived trees, or perhaps higher net primary productivity? If you are running a grassroots project for science, education, environmental conservation, community monitoring, or other reason, and are seeking ways to expand citizen scientists' participation in contributing data, SENR can help you create a mobile data collection tool for your project.
