In the process he made charts of all the stars and kept records of all that he saw (while his sister Caroline did all the documenting).

    Study habitat requirements of birds of prey and their relationships to other species. The idea of evolution goes back before Darwin, although Darwin thought of natural selection. Deer scat (feces) looks like a pile of small, black or brown spheres. It is not the things we label as wilderness that are the problem—for nonhuman nature and large tracts of the natural world do deserve protection—but rather what we ourselves mean when we use the label. Sebeok and Jean Umiker-Sebeok (eds.), 427-454.

    Stewart's notion of the "cultural core' has tended to eclipse his other important concepts such as "culture type", "sociocultural integration, " and "multilinear evolution" which actually figure much larger in his overall "theory of culture change". But the more deeply human life is influenced by technology, the more essential it becomes that these choices and decisions be made in the light of the proper kind of biological knowledge. Reading Wells, one might not realize the importance of the Grants’ careful studies, which demonstrated natural selection in real time.

Catsharks, such as the Swell Shark (Cephaloscyllium ventriosum) from the eastern Pacific and the Chain Catshark (Scyliorhinus retifer) from the western Atlantic, are known to exhibit bright green fluorescence. Although the sales belied the fact, many if not most people would have been immediately confused by much of Darwin’s language.

    Underlying and unifying this triad of heaven, earth and humanity is the notion of qi (pronounced chee in English, as in 'cheetah'). The interaction involves the social arrangements that are required in land exploitation; population density, distribution, and nucleation; permanence and composition of population aggregates; territoriality of societies; intersocietal relationships; and cultural values. If not, and an objective standard is to be imposed, we are left with the enormous problem of discovering this standard and reaching consensus on it.

Obvious as this may seem at first in such day-to-day problems as caretaking, social ecology raises questions that have far-reaching importance for the different ways society and nature have interacted over time and the problems these interactions have produced. What I love about me is that when I gain a new awareness like this, I can no longer act as if I'm ignorant, that I do not know.

Also, in a similar vein, McKenzie Wark (1994a; 1994b: 20) has proposed to use the term 'third nature': "Second nature, which appears to us as the geography of cities and roads and harbours and wool stores is progressively overlayed with a third nature of information flows, creating an information landscape which almost entirely covers the old territories. /../ If there is a qualitative change in the social relations of culture which deserves the name postmodern, perhaps this is it."
