The movement saved some 100,000 trees, attracted media attention, and helped raise environmental awareness. We propose a minimum subset of seven indicators for the five criteria that should be assessed to determine forest degradation under a sustainable ecosystem management regime. The Agni Purana, written about 4000 years ago, stated that man should protect trees to have material gains and religious blessings. Participants have the chance to transcribe a diverse array of collection materials drawn from Smithsonian holdings in science, history, art, and culture.

We have organized this paper as a series of sections that provide a discussion of the selected criteria and indicators, followed by a discussion of our approach to a minimum subset of indicators that could be immediately applied sub-nationally, nationally, and globally. We selected our criteria based on the following considerations: relationship to the main causes of forest degradation (e.g., Kissinger et al. 2012); relationship to the provision of ecosystem services as defined in the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment (Diaz et al. 2005); relevance to variables reported in the Global Forest Resources Assessment (e.g., FAO 2010); potential for the application of remote sensing for monitoring; and relevance to reporting requirements for sustainable forest management (SFM), as required, for example, by the Montréal Process (2009), the Ministerial Conference on the Protection of Forests in Europe (Vienna, Liaison Unit 2003), and the Lapaterique Process (FAO 2002) The Embattled Wilderness: The Natural and Human History of Robinson Forest and the Fight for Its Future. Such a range of management options within a national protected area system is useful since it allows flexibility to provide for the needs of local people living around and occa- sionally inside the park Life Magazine - October 4, 1963. It greatly improved my experience of the country and I found out that many college-educated Costa Ricans regard this book as a staple for learning the ecology of the jungles for both biologists and non-biologists alike RAINFOREST ANIMALS-TEL (Random House Tell Me About Books). The data is to be used to best manage and conserve these important indicator species. The Herp Atlas project continues to grow in partners and collaborators demonstrating the effectiveness of this public-private partnership in helping conserve Michigan's herpetofauna. Contributing observations is now easier than ever with an updated online system and recently developed smart phone app Secret of the Woods.

The purpose of Citizen Science is to help players develop a conceptual understanding of lake ecology while giving them experiences of confronting pressing ecological issues, conducting scientific inquiry to address these issues, and taking action in the (virtual) world to affect change. Citizen Science was developed for upper-elementary school and early middle school students Life Magazine - December 14, 1936.

This is the first report from Madre de Dios of elevated mercury exposure in a community outside of the mining zone. Most women living in Iberia expressed little to no worry about mercury. Iberia is far removed from most ASGM activity by river, from major sources of Hg, suggests that Hg exposure may be a widespread problem throughout the region and the greater watershed online.

Similarly, students’ ratings of emotion after the videos were analyzed using a mixed-design ANOVA with a within-subjects factor of exposure (day 1, day 2, day 3, day 4) and a between-subjects factor of group (control, experiment). Between subjects factors revealed a main effect of group (F1,70 = 52.19, p < 0.001), such that the mean emotion rating was more positive in the control than in the experiment National Geographic 1995 *Vol. 187, No 1-6 & Vol. 188, No 1-6*.

Below, Student 136 reflects on how his cultural background has affected his environmental concern: People care about waste in Japan … that can be because of ecologic policy 2 in Japan.

A combination of features characterize the African rainforest biome, including a history of climate variation; forest expansion and retreat; a long history of human interaction with the biome; a relatively low plant species diversity but large tree biomass; a historically exceptionally high animal biomass that is now being severely hunted down; the dominance of selective logging; small-scale farming and bushmeat hunting as the major forms of direct human pressure; and, in Central Africa, the particular context of mineral- and oil-driven economies that have resulted in unusually low rates of deforestation and agricultural activity Instituting Nature: Authority, Expertise, and Power in Mexican Forests (Politics, Science, and the Environment).
