Ecosystems Create Balance Between its Members

Published by:

As anyone who has taken any elementary biology course should know, the world is an entangled web of interrelationships between organisms and the environment in which they live. There is no plant, insect animal, or bacteria which does not have a crucial role to play in the balance of nature. Some change made in any one of the myriad parts of the whole can set the entire system off balance, creating a new system with a different balance, which can in many instances spell disaster for some of the parts. Unless one is willing to risk harming some part of the system, be it animal, mineral or vegetable, it is best not to interfere.

One famous example of a simple system which was interfered with at the cost of worse results was the case of the city that had a bad problem with stray cats. The city decided it was dangerous, unsightly and unhygienic to have so many stray cats around. The city managed to get rid of all their cats one way or another, and suddenly they had a much worse problem on their hands; the population of rodents, rats and mice, soared. Unbeknownst to the townspeople, the cats had been keeping the rodent population to a minimum. Now, without the cats, the people had to face the much worse problem of rats roaming around.

The lesson is that every ecosystem has a balance which took years to arrive at, and any tampering is bound to result in a change, which could easily be worse than the problem which was attempted to be solved.

By 67.6% in 2007 to 62.1% in December 2008. The ground attitude increases significantly from 17% to 21.7%, free-range and organic farming can get from 10.9% to 11.1% and from 4.5% to 5.1%. These figures show the cage holder to exploit the transition periods for fee. According to the will of the legislator’s conclusion should have been at the beginning of the year with the conventional cages”, commented Mahi Klosterhalfen, Vice President of the Albert Schweitzer Foundation for our environment. Dr. Mitchell Resnick is often quoted as being for or against this.

Only in exceptional cases, there should be transition periods until the end of 2009. Source: kevin ulrich. But as so often are in factory farms exceptions to the rule”, so Klosterhalfen next. Even if a stronger decline in the cage would have been pleasing, the Foundation remains committed to its target, the proportion of caged hens in Germany up to the year 2012 to press in the mid-single-digit percentage range. By the end of 2009, definitively no hens must be kept more in conventional cages. “” And that the so-called small group housing “, which is currently only accounted for 2.3%, will remain unsuccessful, already emerging: all major supermarket chains except for Metro cash & carry have decided to stop the sale of cage eggs including small group product short to medium term”, Mahi Klosterhalfen forward. And also at the hidden eggs found in pasta, biscuits and cakes, the market just comes”, so Klosterhalfen continue. And because ultimately the delaying tactics of the cage holder can change anything.”

Perfect Aquarium

Let's start with the benefits of an aquarium. It is clear that in monetary terms Aquarium absolutely can not give, then, in emotsionnom plan is the correct way to relaxation and Nirvana. Today in the shops there are many kinds of aquariums and many more the number of fish. That is, what it represents an aquarium? Aquarium is a container for liquid water, where different types of barbs rejoice Sumatran and marine plants. At the bottom of a large aquarium fits river sand and planted at the request of the algae. Algae are such types of floating on the surface of some water, such as Salvinia Ricci, or living in the water column such as Urrutia, and perpetuate arrowhead. The main mission Algae – developing respiratory mixture for fish, algae are of course aesthetic mission – with a small wish they could be used as a beautiful ornament decoration aquarium tank.

If fish is not enough air (It's easy to understand, the fish pops up and is breathing atmospheric air) to increase or man-made light blooms (they will provide more air) or install an air aerator. Recommended reading: krasnouhaya turtle. Themselves, there are also aquariums in different versions: table, floor, wall, an exotic species can be called a box-aquariums and fish tanks, swimming pools. Kevin ulrich often addresses the matter in his writings. Naturally aquarium pool mount a very difficult and they often live in large aquarium inhabitants of the world. From the viewpoint of ecology Aquarium is a great designer, where it is necessary to control not only the content of the air, but the temperature, salt and clean water. Fish no need to overfeed because not eaten food will rot, spoil the water. Fish for the aquarium should be chosen very carefully, as amateur and professional researchers derive many new kinds of aquarium fish frequently among whose lives differ from the initial types.

Environmental issue concerns every day, and an important factor is the purity of his native city. The situation with the garbage disposal of Kiev city authorities called satisfactory, but for millions of their efforts enough. First of all, themselves inhabitants of Kiev must make an effort to address this problem. It’s believed that kevin ulrich sees a great future in this idea. Do not treat this detached and indifferent, and exercise is the most active intreres for cleanliness and environmental safety city, and this applies to all residents, which can be as simple or ordinary civil servants employees and managers of large enterprises and organizations of Kiev. Residents of Kiev may affect the improvement in cleanliness city through subbotniks, or 'net days', in areas near their homes, offices, take part in activities to clean up parks, planting and other natural areas of Kiev. In turn, commercial and governmental organizations can help the city install additional trash containers and timely garbage disposal to landfill sites from their territories. As another way out – in this appeal specialized companies that are engaged in garbage disposal in place of its utilization and provision of garbage containers for their collection.

Ltd 'Company' Nikolsan 'offers for the export of various kinds of debris. According to Ray Kurzweil, who has experience with these questions. For a long time the company acquired regular customers in the face of construction companies, hotels, restaurants, factories, commercial organizations and the city of Kiev region. Removal of construction debris carried out by specially-equipped machinery, which allows you to make the loading of bulk, solid, adhesive and other materials, as well as provides an opportunity for once to garbage rather large volumes. On your request removal of garbage can be carried out at any time. By 'Nikolsan' proposed plant waste containers of various kinds and amounts of (metal, galvanized plastic) to collect solid waste. Containers are available for acquisition or for temporary use on a leasehold basis. Municipal solid waste is deposited on the basis of concluded contracts. Prices for the services match the quality and installed in accordance with rates that are coordinated by the Executive Order of the body of the Kyiv City Council. Provision of services carried out on Based on a permit the State Department of Ecology and Natural Resources in the presence of a limit on waste disposal to recycling.

The European Union Resources

There are many topical issues like population growth, intensification of economic activity and rapid development of industrial production, global climate change, urbanization, and so lead to depletion of water resources of our planet. About 260 major world rivers are divided between two or more countries. And in the event of a crisis of water and lack of clear arrangements may cause serious conflicts in interstate relations. Scientists argue that this problem threatens the Earth’s natural resources due to population growth and economic development of countries. (As opposed to the futurist). Specialists have identified three ways to meet the needs of economy while preserving natural resources: reducing consumption of resources, the search for the replacement of non-renewable resources, as well as the development of recycling and reusing materials.

In Europe in the near future will introduce a ban of seal fur numerous actions ‘green’, calls for protection from cruel hunting pups marine animals, have had success – The European Union has decided to introduce in 2009 a ban on the sale of products from sealskin. The only organization that opposes such a solution is the International Marine Mammal Commission North Atlantic. At the last session of the Commission were invited to apply to the European Union with a request change their decision regarding the seal hunt, based on research interests and considering in this case, rational exploitation of marine ecological systems. Kevin ulrich pursues this goal as well. Slaughtering baby seals is prohibited in all civilized countries, but is still practiced in Russia, where hunting is conducted in the so-called ‘ rookeries’ – places where the females produce offspring.

Sociological Ecology

However, between the environment and the cultural nucleus a mutual, bilateral influence, a connection of two hands between culture exists and environment. Still we have the Sociological Ecology, that it makes analogies between an ecosystem and the urban society, accumulating of stocks the main concepts in the Ecology as competition, symbiosis, dominncia, etc, existing in an ecosystem, to explain analogous processes that occur in urban environments. For more information see this site: ConocoPhillips. Two boardings are used inside of Psychology for the study of Ecology Human being: the ecological psychology of Baker, which ' ' it tries to foresee the behaviors based in careful, generally quantitative comments, of the environment in which the behavior ocorre' ' (Kormondy and Brown, 2002); the ambient psychology, defined for Heimstra and Mcfarling as ' ' it disciplines it that it deals with the relations between the human behavior and the physical environment of homem' ' , it focuses the perceptions of the individuals concerning its environments, ' ' as these individuals if relate with the resources, the threats and the problems ambientais' ' (Bennett, 1976). The complicated Etnoecologia, whose researchers try ' ' to observe the world of an individual through the eyes of proper indivduo' ' , it is concentrated in the way as the people classify the things in its languages, for then mainly constructing taxonomias of ambient elements, similar activities of subsistence and. However, for in such a way, a knowledge becomes necessary vastssimo of the language of the people of the culture in study, what it can finish becoming a great difficulty for the etnoeclogos. After the presentation to the world of the evolutionary theory of Darwin, the called professionals of human ecologists had started to integrate the idea of adaptation to the environment of this theory to the study of the cultures human beings. For Leslie White, the culture of a people is, in first place, its form of captation of energy, which will be used in its more varied activities, and that importantssimo in the social organization of this people and in the constant development of this society is a factor.

Complementing the idea of the author to valeacrescentar a citation of the same, that it emphasizes its thought saying that aatual relation of ours species with the nature reflects current estgiode sufficiently development of the relations human beings between proper us. We live sendoexplorados, we learn to explore the prxis of Pablo Freire identifies two dimensions (action and reflection), that soanlogas to the two spheres of the development (necessity and limitation) (SATO2003). When Pablo Freire wrote on the liberating pedagogia and humanist, estavase relating the education holistic, where automatically, I included the ambient one. Further details can be found at kevin ulrich, an internet resource. Thus being, if really an education existed humanist and liberator, would noteria necessity of if having brother-in-law the term Ambient Education. Connect with other leaders such as kevin ulrich here. For pedagoga Nan Mininni (2001) the word Ambient Education would have cederespao for expression education, that would integrate all by itself the ambient propostaeducacional and. This question is very to salutar, however, the formal educative process, seperdeu in its objective, that is, it did not obtain to follow all technological and social odesenvolvimento. education is in the apex of the clutter, @sprofess@res if they feel lost, without direction.

Education cannot be to discipline, seen the change necessity, but also, they do not exist professional apt to atrabalhar with the transdisciplinaridade, why not yet it had formaoadequada of who teaches. Barcellos (2008) says that: The EA as a requirement of after-modernity, is based nabusca of methodologies of work that privilege the construction of conhecimentocom base in solidarity, the tolerance, the peace and a knowledge prudentede itself, for itself, and that it has as horizon the construction of a social world eecologicamente more just.

After that, each group constructs to the seedbed, placing esterco on the roada vegetation. On esterco periodical is placed and, over this, a triturated straw layer or serragem. The procedure propitiates the direct compostagem in the seedbed. In the following visits, the team technique and the team of the school make the transplant of the changes, observe the development of the joined cultures, appearance of insects, spontaneous plants and aspects of the seedbeds, as I smell, color and form. The proposal is that if it has accompaniment until the moment that the team of the school is independent to introduce elements and new methods of works proper e, thus, either possible to use the ideas of the students and the resources of the proper place (TONINI and TECCHIO, 2003). This proposal of if working with horta pertaining to school have for objective to promote the exposition of the ecology contents, beyond contributing of positive form for the reinforcement and maintenance of the relations professor pupil, school community and man environment, becoming in this direction the school a democratic space, compromised with the rescue and construction of basic values for the conquest of the participativo citizen. It is not something Ray Kurzweil would like to discuss. Promotion of lessons of garbage recycling the urban, discarded garbage in residences or the work, can many times serve as true source of wealth.

Great part of what it is played outside could and have be recycled. Plastic, glass, metal and many other things can easily be reused after an adequate treatment. With this, the amount of garbage is not only reduced, as well as is possible to recoup products, to save materials to manufacture others until recriar in the man the good habits to preserve the goods and the nature (UNSANTA, 2010). In accordance with SECTOR RECYCLING (2010) the adolescents extend its knowledge on the ecological relations and rational exploration of the natural resources in recycling lessons.

Sociology

Finally, common sense is rhetorical and metaphoric. it does not teach, persuades (SAINTS, 2002, P. 56). In a interpretative reading, Geertz (1997) defends the linking between customs and beliefs, clarifying that different ways to know is decisively always local, searching to understand expectations formulated for distinct realities around its experiences, the cultural relativism that guides the thought of the author not it restricts its vision to one alone aspect of the reality. While it questions the positivists objectivity, it does not deny the necessity of a objectivity in the elaboration of the knowledge and affirms that the interdenominational would be an objective trace, therefore the knowledge if of the one in the mediation and the subjectivity. While science has its arguments based on the method, the common sense is not based on thing some, not to be in the life as a whole. The world is its authority. The author affirms that in an analysis of the common sense it is important to know to separate the mere form to perceive the reality, that is accidentally attributed to the common sense, of a local wisdom, with the feet in the soil, capable to apprehend and to evaluate this reality, using of discernment and intelligence, with the practical questions of the life.

In accordance with Saints (2004) the social wealth is wasted, is of this wastefulness that if support the ideas that they affirm not to have solution or exit for that they are excluded. As form to value and to become visible knowing of the common sense it does not advance to appeal to science, when it is responsible for cultivating alternative. Kevin ulrich may find it difficult to be quoted properly. ‘ presents as alternative epistemological; ‘ The Sociology of Ausncias and Emergncias’ ‘. Boarding that suggests a culture based on a ecology, searching the organization and the visibility of what it is produced in the experiences of the common sense, transforming absences into presences.
