Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2008 im Fachbereich Sachunterricht, Heimatkunde (Grundschulpadagogik), Note: keine, Universitat Luneburg (Sachunterricht), Veranstaltung: Kulturelle und biologische Diversitat - Zugange fur Kinder, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Die folgende Arbeit ist ein Resultat des Seminars Biologische und kulturelle Vielfalt - Zugange fur Kinder." In diesem Seminar ging es um die Verknupfung von Biodiversitat und kultureller Vielfalt. Zunachst wurde durch theoretische Betrachtung der einzelnen Bereiche eine Wissensgrundlage geschaffen, die dann zusammengesetzt wurde. Die Umsetzung erfolgte anhand von Zeitungsartikeln fur eine Seminarzeitung. Die Artikel wurden nach der Struktur des Seminars verfasst. Vorerst wurde so das Thema biologi-sche Diversitat beleuchtet und mittels verschiedener praktischer Problemstellung analysiert. Hierbei war es entscheidend, dass die dazugehorigen Artikel eine Kernproblematik ansprachen und uber die biologische Vielfalt grundsatzlich Auf-schluss gaben. Nachdem dieses auch mit der kulturellen Vielfalt erreicht wurde, standen Artikel an, die beide Bereiche miteinander vernetzen sollten. Dieses stellte sich zwar als Herausforderung, aber auch als sehr lehrreich und interessant heraus. Aus dieser Idee und des darauffolgenden Artikels, der mit Hilfe eines konkreten Unter-richtsthemas, die bisherigen Gegenstande in die Praxis umsetzen sollten, wurde unsere Idee fur diese Arbeit. Die Luneburger Heide" stellt ein mehrperspektivisches Thema dar, das sich fur die Bearbeitung von Diversitat, biologischer sowie kultureller, geradezu anbietet. In der folgenden Arbeit soll diese These belegt werden, indem alle Facetten dieser besonderen Landschaft aufgegriffen und beschrieben werden. Zunachst folgt eine erneute Auseinandersetzung mit dem Thema des Seminars und es wird eine Grundlage fur die Bearbeitung unseres Unterrichtsgegenstandes geschaffen. Danach folgt ein Kapitel uber die Luneburger Heide" und ihre Entstehung, um eine Wissensb

Changing desert areas for land use implies a lot of ecological problems. These and related ones are dealt with in this book covering various interdisciplinary and international aspects. Large areas in arid and semi-arid regions are already polluted in various ways. One of the biggest problems is the anthropogenic salinization by inadequate means of agriculture and irrigation. Additionally, most arid areas in the world are dramatically overgrazed. Methods and practices of a sustainable land use in deserts are urgently needed in many arid regions. This book gives a broad survey on some of the affected regions of the world as well as some case studies from elsewhere (Aral Sea, Negev desert, Namib desert etc.). Thus, basic and applied sciences are brought together. Water management in deserts, grazing systems or reclamation of desertified areas are among the topics of this book, as well as social and economic aspects.

This is the first book to be written on this fascinating, severely declining species, the black grouse. Author Patrick Laurie's lively natural history is interwoven with his account of his on-going battle to reintroduce them on his farm in the Scottish Borders. His beautiful illustrations convey his passion for these vulnerable birds, so full of character, from their aggressive lekking behaviour to their desperate struggle to survive against nearly-impossible odds in modern Britain.* Black grouse range in Britain has shrunk by 95% in the past 100 years, with 25% of that decline since the 1990s.* Mature black grouse consistently fly higher and faster than almost any other gamebird, making them fantastic, testing quarry for sportsmen.* If we allow raptor predation to increase, we risklosing this iconic bird species in Britain altogether.* During the frozen winter of 2009/10 almost half the population of black grouse being monitored by the Game and Wildlife Conservancy Trust in the more treeless North Pennines were killed off by heavy snows and frost.* The author explains why he believes it is still possible to stage a major black grouse renaissance in moorland shooting.

While biodiversity loss is an ecological phenomenon, it also has further dimensions – political, social and, last but not least, economic. From the economic perspective, the rapid loss of biological diversity can be viewed in two ways. First, the consequence of this deterioration process is a loss of options and an increase in scarcity of the environmental ‘good’, biodiversity. Second, economic activity and the structure of global and local economic institutions have frequently been identified as the major drivers of biodiversity loss. In economic terms, this constitutes a market failure – market-based economic activities lead to processes which undermine the long-term stability of these very activities. This book provides an ecological economic perspective on the value of diversity in ecosystems. Combining insights from various sub-disciplines of ecology and environmental/ecological economics, the author constructs a conceptual framework which identifies the ways in which biodiversity influences human well-being and offers a novel, unifying perspective on the economic value of biodiversity.? This framework demonstrates that biodiversity’s economic value mainly results from uncertainty about the future, regarding both supply of and demand for ecosystem services, and interconnections between ecosystems. The book goes on to identify suitable methods for economic valuation of biodiversity and discusses the currently underdeveloped and underused approach of deliberative monetary valuation.? Combining a strong theoretical framework with practical examples, this book will be of great interest to students and researchers of ecological economics, ecosystem services, environmental values and environmental and resource economics.

Numerous scientific studies show that biodiversity in Europe has been declining rapidly for some time and that this pattern has been matched by the great periods of expansion and intensification of land use. This first assessment of the Red List status of Europe's and the European Union's mammals shows that 15 per cent of species are threatened with extinction, 27 per cent were identified as declining and another 33 per cent had an unknown population trend. It identifies those species that are threatened with extinction at the regional level in order that appropriate conservation action can be taken to improve their status.

The book aims to address the lack of information on the experiences of others by providing a comparative analysis of national access and benefit-sharing laws and policies in the 41 Pacific Rim countries that signed the CBD. It provides key insights on the main characteristics of selected access and benefit-sharing (ABS) policies and laws, their development, and implementation process. It contains a detailed comparative analysis of existing laws and policies. It presents four case studies of countries with regulations in place and contrasts them with four case studies of countries that are struggling to develop their regulations. It ends by discussing options of an international regime on ABS and a summary analysis of the main lessons and recommendations from the study.

What is the biological reason for gossip? For laughter? For the creation of art? Why do dogs have curly tails? What can microbes tell us about morality? These and many other questions are tackled by renowned evolutionist David Sloan Wilson in this witty and groundbreaking new book. With stories that entertain as much as they inform, Wilson outlines the basic principles of evolution and shows how, properly understood, they can illuminate the length and breadth of creation, from the origin of life to the nature of religion. Now everyone can move beyond the sterile debates about creationism and intelligent design to share Darwin’s panoramic view of animal and human life, seamlessly connected to each other. Evolution, as Wilson explains, is not just about dinosaurs and human origins, but about why all species behave as they do—from beetles that devour their own young, to bees that function as a collective brain, to dogs that are smarter in some respects than our closest ape relatives. And basic evolutionary principles are also the foundation for humanity’s capacity for symbolic thought, culture, and morality. In example after example, Wilson sheds new light on Darwin’s grand theory and how it can be applied to daily life. By turns thoughtful, provocative, and daringly funny, Evolution for Everyone addresses some of the deepest philosophical and social issues of this or any age. In helping us come to a deeper understanding of human beings and our place in the world, it might also help us to improve that world. From the Hardcover edition.

For indigenous cultures, property is an alien concept. Yet the market-driven industries of the developed world do not hesitate to exploit indigenous raw materials, from melodies to plants, using intellectual property law to justify their behaviour. Existing intellectual property law, for the most part, allows industries to use indigenous knowledge and resources without asking for consent and without sharing the benefits of such exploitation with the indigenous people themselves. It should surprise nobody that indigenous people object. Recognizing that the commercial exploitation of indigenous knowledge and resources takes place in the midst of a genuine and significant clash of cultures, the eight contributors to this important book explore ways in which intellectual property law can expand to accommodate the interests of indigenous people to their traditional knowledge, genetic resources, indigenous names and designations, and folklore. In so doing they touch upon such fundamental issues and concepts as the following: collective rights to the living heritage; relevant human rights norms; benefit-sharing in biological resources; farmers rights; the practical needs of documentation, assistance, and advice; the role of customary law; bioprospecting and biopiracy; and public domain. As a starting point toward mutual understanding and a common basis for communication between Western-style industries and indigenous communities, Indigenous Heritage and Intellectual Property is of immeasurable value. It offers not only an in-depth evaluation of the current legal situation under national, regional and international law including analyses of the Convention on Biological Diversity and other international instruments, as well as initiatives of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), and other international bodies but also probes numerous further possibilities. While no one concerned with indigenous culture or environmental issues can afford to ignore it, this book is also of special significance to practitioners and policymakers in intellectual property law in relation to indigenous heritage. This book, here in its second edition, presents the most recent state of knowledge in the field.
