Resources (21-40 of 106)

  1. Clarifying the concept: the biological basis for human values of nature

    Contributor(s):: Kellert, Stephen R.

  2. Coda

    Contributor(s):: Kellert, Stephen R.

  3. Conservation implications of dietary dilution from debris ingestion: sublethal effects in post-hatchling loggerhead sea turtles

    Contributor(s):: Shannon J. McCauley, Karen A. Bjomdal

    Ingestion of anthropogenic debris by marine species has been documented extensively; fewer studies have attempted to quantify the sublethal effects caused by debris ingestion. One potential sublethal effect is reduced nutrient gains from diets diluted by consumption of debris. Post-hatchling and...

  4. Conservation of biodiversity within Canadian agricultural landscapes: integrating habitat for wildlife

    Contributor(s):: Mineau, P., McLaughlin, A.

    Industrialized agriculture currently substitutes for many of the ecological functions of soil microorganisms, macroinvertebrates, wild plants, and vertebrate animals with high cost inputs of pesticides and fertilizers. Enhanced biological diversity potentially offers agricultural producers a...

  5. Conserving Wolves by Transforming Them? The Transformative Effects of Technologies of Government in Biodiversity Conservation

    Contributor(s):: Stokland, Håkon B.

  6. Critical impact assessment of organic agriculture

    Contributor(s):: Xie, Biao, Wang, XiaoRong, Ding, ZhuHong, Yang, YaPing

    Based on its production guideline, organic agriculture has set for itself the goals of minimizing all forms of pollution and maintaining sustainability of the farming system. By striving for these goals, organic farming meets the demands of an increasing number of consumers who are critical of...

  7. Culture: searching for the lost arrow: physical and spiritual ecology in the hunter's world

    Contributor(s):: Nelson, Richard

  8. Culture: the loss of floral and faunal story: the extinction of experience

    Contributor(s):: Nabhan, Gary Paul, St. Antoine, Sara

  9. Current opinion on maximizing veterinary profession growth and contributions

    Contributor(s):: Nimmanapalli, R., Donapaty, S. R.

    Veterinary profession sphere overlaps three major biology arenas namely agriculture, basic sciences, and human medicine. Thus, so far the investments in veterinary field are not proportional to the scope of their responsibilities. Rededication and rejuvenation can help veterinary profession to...

  10. Density-dependent diet selection and body condition of cattle and horses in heterogeneous landscapes

    Contributor(s):: Cornelissen, P., Vulink, J. T.

    For some decades, grazing by cattle and horses is used as a management tool to achieve different nature management goals. For managers there are still questions to be answered about the effects of herbivore densities on their performance, vegetation development and biodiversity. This study...

  11. Do Birdwatchers Care about Bird Disturbance?

    Contributor(s):: Weston, Michael A., Guay, Patrick-Jean, McLeod, Emily M., Miller, Kelly K.

    Little is known about how non-consumptive recreationists perceive their impacts on animals and how this relates to recreationist behavior. We surveyed attitudes and behaviors relating to bird disturbance of 179 birdwatchers who visited a world-renowned, restricted-access birdwatching destination...

  12. Effects of Human Disturbance on Physiology, Behavior, and Ornamentation in the Eastern Bluebird

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Lauren Marjorie Gillespie

    Overall, few studies have focused on anthropogenic disturbance on wildlife physiology. Research has typically focused on how environmentally contaminated areas or anthropogenic disturbance (e.g. noise, human activity) influences biodiversity, community structure and behavior of individual...

  13. Effects of social learning on foraging behaviour and live weight gain in first-season grazing calves

    | Contributor(s):: Hessle, A. K.

    When livestock are turned out to semi-natural grasslands, an effective onset of grazing is important both for animal productivity and for defoliation of the sward, which preserve the biodiversity of the vegetation. The aim of this study was to investigate whether foraging behaviour of naive...

  14. Ethical considerations in agro-biodiversity research, collecting, and use

    | Contributor(s):: Engels, J. M. M., Dempewolf, H., Henson-Apollonio, V.

    Humans have always played a crucial role in the evolutionary dynamics of agricultural biodiversity and thus there is a strong relationship between these resources and human cultures. These agricultural resources have long been treated as a global public good, and constitute the livelihoods of...

  15. Ethical issues related to food sector evolution in developing countries: about sustainability and equity. (Special issue: Food safety, food quality and food ethics. Selected papers from the 3rd Congress of the European Society for Agricultural and Fo

    | Contributor(s):: Raoult-Wack, A. L., Bricas, N.

    After a century of major technical advance, essentially achieved by and for the industrialized countries, the evolution of the food sector in southern countries should no longer be thought of in terms of a "headlong pursuit." In the present context of demographic growth, urbanization, poverty and...

  16. Ethics and political action: biophilia, selfish genes, shared values

    | Contributor(s):: Holmes, Rolston, III.

  17. Ethics and political action: love it or lose it: the coming biophilia

    | Contributor(s):: Orr, David W.

  18. EU DAISIE research project: wanted - death penalty to keep native species competitive?

    | Contributor(s):: Zisenis, M.

  19. Evaluating Trophic Rewilding as a Conservation Technique

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Aaron Sieve

    The focus for this paper is to define specifically trophic rewilding, determine its efficacy as a conservation technique, and explore ways to lessen one of its key limitations. Trophic rewilding is the conservation technique whereby an extirpated keystone species or ecosystem engineer is...
