  • Pastoral movements and the subsistance unit of the Rendille of Northern Kenya: with special reference to camel ecology in Africa 2.
  • This paper describes and analyses the livestock ecology, pastoral movements and changes in Rendille social groups. New concepts such as the cooperative herding group, homogeneous or heterogeneous fission-fusion of the social group
  • and the subsistence unit are presented. The importance of camels, technological adjustments to camel rearing for a stable food resource, the determinants of pastoral movement and its patterns, social adaptations to camel herding, and the peculiarities of camel

  • Biogeography ; Cultivated plants ; Disease ; Ecology ; Fauna ; Historical geography ; Vegetation
  • Collection of 12 crafted essays, each on a different aspect of the movement of plants, animals and disease around the world and their impact on human populations. Two of the essays are: The biological metamorphosis of the Americas
  • First World political ecology : lessons from the Wise Use movement
  • Conflict ; Cultural identity ; Environment ; Political ecology ; Resource management ; Rural area ; Social movement ; United States of America ; Western United States
  • The A. demonstrates that the insights and tools of political ecology have much to offer in the study of First World resource conflicts. He uses theories and methods drawn from the literature concerning political ecology and moral economies to argue
  • that many assumptions regarding state capacity, individual and collective identities and motivations in advanced capitalist countries are mistaken or incomplete. The argument is based mainly on the A.'s own research on the Wise Use movement in the rural
  • Geoecology and mass movement in the Manaslu-Ganesh and Langtang-Jugal Himals, Nepal
  • Mass movement in the Himalaya
  • Geo-ecology ; Human impact ; Mass movement ; Nepal ; Slope ; Spatial variation ; Tectonic thrust ; Tectonics
  • This study describes and explains the spatial distribution of mass movement in the central Nepal Himalaya. Judgments were formulated on the origin and rates of mass movement using field evidence, topographic maps, geologic maps, and SPOT imagery
  • . Mass movement scars were mapped in the field. Chi-square analyses revealed that the frequency of slope failures varies with slope aspect, and position above/below the Main Central Thrust (MCT). Human disturbance did not account for a statistically
  • significant increase in mass movement.

  • Ecology, objectivity and critique in writings on nature and human societies
  • Ecology ; Environment ; Epistemology ; Historical geography ; History of ideas ; History of sciences ; Society-environment relationship
  • Inspired by the Green Movement and invoking many of the analytical concepts of ecological science, environmental historians have offered criticisms of modern society and its relation with nature. Revisionists in ecological science have repudiated
  • Reconsidering regional political ecologies : toward a political ecology of the rural American West
  • Conflict ; Environment ; Human ecology ; Ideology ; Man-environment relations ; Regional geography ; Rural area ; Scale ; United States of America ; Western United States
  • There is danger of moving political ecology toward even greater emphasis on specificity and difference and pushing consideration of broader-scale processes farther into the background. One response to these challenges is to reconsider the concept
  • of regional political ecologies. Regional approaches can retain the greatest strengths of recent political ecology in revealing the importance of local-scale social dynamics while situating these dynamics within broader scales of regional and global processes.

  • The soil creep on slopes in different altitudinal and ecological zones of Sudetes Mountains
  • Studies of soil movement have been carried out in the Sudetes Mts. for nearly 30 years, mainly by means of wooden pegs (columns). Three hypsometric-climatic zones were distinguished : low meadows, up to a height of 800 m, old forest at 800-1 200 m
  • and high meadows, above 1 200 m. Human activities (soil and meadow cultivation, tourism, winter sports) have a great direct and indirect impact on soil movement accelerating it threefold in the low meadows and twofold in the high meadows.

  • Examples of the depth, sharpness and duration of ground inversions in Finnish Lapland. The data include long-term measurements at fixed points in valleys along slopes and on tops of fells as well as temporary line measurements made from a moving car.
