  • Adalékok az Ecsedi-lap torténeti foldrajzahoz. (Contribution to the historical geography of the Ecsed swamp)
  • The basin of the Ecsed Swamp was formed in the Holocene but intensive swamping occured only in the Beech Phase. Village people on the swamp were occupied in flood-plain agriculture. This flood-plain agriculture was based on artificial channels
  • Reliving off the swamp : a Cajun tourism commodity
  • Commodification ; Ecology ; Ethnic group ; Fishing ; Hunting ; Louisiana ; Political ecology ; Swamp ; Tourism ; United States of America
  • ’ desires. A case study of Louisiana Cajun tourism reveals how a specific narrative of swamp subsistence is deployed by individual tour guides and through the tourism planning process. This “heritage ecology” is used to romanticize a Cajun cultural ecology
  • as “living off of the swamp” despite the fact that swamp commodities have almost always been produced for external markets. Similar to past commodities, swamp tourism still involves the production of Cajun-swamp culture for outside consumers. This type
  • of tourism paradoxically presents the image of a physically and socially disconnected ethnic group by fostering connections with outsiders while in the swamp.
  • Stream channelization and swamp formation in the U.S. Coastal Plain
  • Coastal environment ; Coastal plain ; Floodplain ; Forest ; Humid environment ; Hydraulic works ; Plant colonization ; Swamp ; Tennessee ; United States of America
  • The aim of this paper is to describe the linkage between tributary channelization and swamp formation in western Tennessee. Specifically, this paper discusses : the relationship between tributary channelization and the formation of channel blockages
  • ; the formation of swamps upstream of these blockages; changes in bottomland forest vegetation after these swamps develop.
  • Two mid-Holocene millenia of swamp forest in the Rhine/Meuse deltaic plain
  • The paleoenvironmental evolution of a Dutch deltaic swamp forest area during the mid-Holocene was strongly governed by a general rise of water level (bound to postglacial sea-level rise) and by fluctuations in this water-level rise. A phasing
  • of this 2.000 years period shows alternation of closed swamp forest on the one hand, and (fluvio-) lacustrine environment with swamp forest islands on the other. The refined scale of investigation permits bird's-view landscape reconstructions. These also show
  • Late Pleistocene and Holocene history at Mubwindi Swamp, Southwest Uganda
  • C 14 dating ; Forest ; Human impact ; Palaeo-environment ; Palynology ; Pollen analysis ; Quaternary ; Stratigraphy ; Swamp ; Uganda ; Vegetation dynamics
  • Deposits beneath Mubwindi Swamp provide a partial record of vegetation history since at least 43,000 yr ago. The AA. studied pollen from 2 cores and obtained 9 radiocarbon ages from 1 of these cores and 3 radiocarbon ages from the other. Pollen
  • deposited before and soon after the last glacial maximum represents vegetation very different from the modern vegetation of the Mubwindi Swamp catchment. The pollen data provide evidence for a late glacial montane forest refuge near Mubwindi Swamp. During
  • Boundary making and regional identities in a globalized environment : rebordering the Nariva Swamp, Trinidad

  • , and international actors engaged in a contest to define conservation boundaries and produce bounded identities within the Nariva Swamp. State and local practices were influenced in complex ways, and relations of power were altered on multiple levels.
  • Vegetation change in the coastal-lowland rainforest at Avai'o'vuna swamp, Vava'u, Kingdom of Tonga
  • C 14 dating ; Charcoal ; Holocene ; Human impact ; Humid environment ; Island ; Palaeo-environment ; Palynology ; Quaternary ; Sea level ; Swamp ; Taxonomy ; Tonga ; Tropical rain forest
  • This research tests the following hypotheses : the Polynesian settlement of Tonga is reflected in the sediment record, particularly through the appearance of microscopic charcoal in wetlands; the coastal swamp of Avai'o'vuna can provide information

  • The geomorphic character and hydrological function of an upland swamp, Budderoo plateau, southern highlands, NSW, Australia
  • Australia ; Humid environment ; Hydrology ; New South Wales ; Peat bog ; Plateau ; Precipitation ; Response time ; Sedimentology ; Swamp ; Underground water
  • In this study, the geomorphic, sedimentological, and hydrological properties of an intact upland swamp on the Budderoo Plateau NSW are investigated. The geomorphic structure of the swamp is simple, and the sedimentology comprises basal layers
  • of coarse sands, overlain by several layers of organic accumulation. Each of these sedimentary units has different hydrological behaviors (rates of water throughflow and discharge) that drive the overall function of the swamp in response to rainfall
  • of various magnitudes and duration. Four hydrological response types have been identified in the functioning of this swamp, characterized by different peaks and recession responses to rainfall. The form of the hydrograph produced is controlled by antecedent
  • water table position and the amount, timing and duration of rainfall. Depending on antecedent moisture conditions, the swamp can operate either as a store for water or as a rapid conduit for water throughflow and overland flow.

  • Causes of late-Atlantic swamp-forest submergence in the central Rhine/Meuse delta in Climatic changes on a yearly to millennial basis.
  • It is argued that the late-Atlantic phase of swamp-forest submergence in the central part of the Rhine/Meuse delta has no direct paleo-climatic significance. The principle cause was adjustment of the river gradient induced by the seaward

  • Australia ; C 14 dating ; Human impact ; Impact ; New South Wales ; Palaeo-ecology ; Palaeo-environment ; Palynology ; Pollen diagram ; Swamp ; Tropical rain forest
  • This study compares the erosion, productivity, fire and vegetation history in prehistoric and historical times at Burraga Swamp in montane rainforest in New South Wales. While no significant changes in the largely oligotrophic conditions or in fire
  • Incidental aquaculture in California's rice paddies : red swamp crawfish
  • Introduction of the red swamp crawfish, Procambarus clarkii, into California and its diffusion throughout northern California's rice paddies created the conditions for an incidental aquaculture economy in a landscape devoted to irrigated grain
  • additional markets for red swamp crawfish.

  • Impact of climate change on dynamic of plant communities, lakes and swamps in Beijing area during Holocene period
  • Based on pollen analysis, charcoal fragment, C 14 radiocarbon data and loss-on-ignition (LOI), this paper analyses the plant communities in Beijing area during Holocene period. Lakes and swamps changes and plant fictional types have been discussed.
  • 14,000 years of sediment, vegetation, and water-level changes at the Makepeace Cedar Swamp, southeastern Massachusetts
  • Data from a transect of 4 cores collected in the Makepeace Cedar Swamp, near Carver, Massachusetts, record past changes in deposition, vegetation, and water level. Time series of palynological data provide a 14,000-yr record of regional and local
