Working at the research sites of Jane Goodall (Gombe, Tanzania), Biruté Galdikas (Camp Leakey, Borneo), and Dian Fossey (Karisoke, Rwanda), he identified the concept of biophony based on the relationships of individual creatures to the total biological soundscape as each establishes frequency and/or temporal bandwidth within a given habitat.

Angle of Repose: the steepest angle that slope, rock, or detritus material settles into without toppling.

He said that with respect to humanity, our sense of thirst (a webstring) was scientifically as much a part of the water cycle as any other part of it. Studies of the evolution of species might seek to answer the question of how populations have changed genetically over several generations but might not necessarily attempt to learn what the underlying mechanisms might be. Let me draw three conclusions that speak to our present existence between the ages.

Moreover, this work will allow a greater appreciation of dytiscids as model organisms for investigations of fundamental principles derived from ecological and evolutionary theory. At any moment only abut 5-10% of the human brain's neurons are sparking, but eventually they all do, a fact that contradicts the common but inaccurate idea that people use only a small portion of their brains. (How much of the brain a person uses at once, or regularly, is another matter.) The adult brain contains about 10 billion neurons, with the brain as a whole drawing 20-40 watts of power, and with an ultimate storage capacity of (very roughly) 100 terrabytes: about the same as every book ever written, digitized.

It is for all life--life in its various forms and structures. Sunlight can only penetrate the water up to a depth of about 30 metres below the surface. However much one may be attracted to such a vision, it entails problematic consequences. This is why one finds transpersonal ecologists making statements to the effect that they are more concerned with ontology or cosmology (i.e. with the general question of the way the world is) than with ethics.

Much work in this field focuses on the complex interdependences and interrelationships between human and environmental systems. Secondly, management plans did not take into account the way that fish populations change from year to year because of natural fluctuations in the physical and biological conditions of the oceans (ie, natural changes in ocean ecosystem state). We, instead, became addicted to knowing webstrings in ways and stories that we didn't own through natural experience.
