Energy Flow in Ecosystems
 
07:46
008 - Energy Flow in Ecosystems In this video Paul Andersen explains how energy flows in ecosystems. Energy enters via producers through photosynthesis or chemosynthesis. Producers and consumers release the energy from food through cellular respiration. An explanation of gross primary productivity and net primary productivity are included. Energy and biomass in ecological pyramids show energy efficiency. Do you speak another language?

Nature's internet: how trees talk to each other in a healthy forest | Suzanne Simard | TEDxSeattle
 
19:33
This fascinating talk presents the scientific research that shows the interconnectedness of life in the forest ecosystem. It takes us beneath the forest floor where we learn how trees are communicating and exchanging resources. Going beyond the simple view of a forest as a resource to be exploited, it presents the forest as a complex network of life. Her examination of the relationships that make up the complexity of nature present compelling support for the idea that “We are all one” Suzanne Simard studies the surprising and delicate complexity in nature. Her main focus is on the below-ground fungal networks that connect trees and facilitate underground inter-tree communication and interaction. Her team's analysis revealed that the fungi networks move water, carbon and nutrients such as nitrogen between and among trees as well as across species. The research has demonstrated that these complex, symbiotic networks in our forests -- at the hub of which stand what she calls the "mother trees" -- mimic our own neural and social networks. This groundbreaking work on symbiotic plant communication has far-reaching implications in both the forestry and agricultural industries, in particular concerning sustainable stewardship of forests and the plant’s resistance to pathogens. She works primarily in forests, but also grasslands, wetlands, tundra and alpine ecosystems. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

Gifford Pinchot, an early advocate of scientific forestry, along with President Theodore Roosevelt and conservation organizations, led the effort to manage forest for the public good... History In 1876, Congress created the office of Special Agent in the Department of Agriculture to assess the state of the forests in the United States. Franklin B. Hough was appointed the head of the office. In 1881, the office was expanded into the newly formed Division of Forestry. The Forest Reserve Act of 1891 authorized withdrawing land from the public domain as "forest reserves," managed by the Department of the Interior. In 1901, the Division of Forestry was renamed the Bureau of Forestry. The Transfer Act of 1905 transferred the management of forest reserves from the General Land Office of the Interior Department to the Bureau of Forestry, henceforth known as the US Forest Service. Gifford Pinchot was the first Chief Forester of the US Forest Service. In 1911, Congress passed the Weeks Act, authorizing the government to purchase private lands for stream-flow protection, and to maintain the lands as national forests. This made it possible for the national forest system to expand into the eastern United States...

AGU Virtual Poster Showcase Fall 2017 – Caroline Juang
 
05:02
Title: A Model of 25 Years of Carbon Exchange and Its Factors in the Harvard Forest Abstract: The temperate forest biosphere is an important reservoir for carbon by accounting for half of the world’s CO2 sink [Battle et al., 2000; IPCC, 2013]. In the face of increasing CO2 emissions from anthropogenic sources, it is essential to study the temperate forest carbon sink to understand how environmental factors of sunlight and temperature control the net drawdown of CO2 over time. This thesis used the Forest Ecosystem Model, a model based on Model-0 in Urbanski et al. (2007), to parametrize the relationship of temperature and sunlight on respiration and photosynthesis in the Harvard Forest, a temperate forest in Petersham, MA [Urbanski et al., 2007]. Parameters representing the contribution of photosynthesis and respiration were quantified in rolling 5-year periods of time by comparing the model’s predicted NEE output to observed NEE measured by the Harvard Forest Environmental Measurement Station (EMS) tower. The null hypothesis, stating that the Forest Ecosystem Model will capture observed NEE using factors of temperature and sunlight, was rejected by winter seasons, suggesting that other factors not accounted-for in the model are needed to fit observed NEE well. Spring and summer seasons did not reject the null hypothesis, indicating that NEE could be well-captured using sunlight and temperature. The model overall was able to capture some of the relationship between seasons, NEE, temperature, and sunlight and pinpoint anomalous years that did not represent the ecosystem as a whole. With future improvements of the model, the Forest Ecosystem Model will have the powerful capability of understanding changes in the ecosystem on the decadal scale and the potential to influence future forest policy. The Virtual Poster Showcase (VPS) is an online poster presentation opportunity hosted by the American Geophysical Union that allows students at the undergraduate and graduate levels to share their research without having to travel to a conference. Students are guided through the essential steps of an in-person scientific conference but in an online and asynchronous environment: abstract submission, poster preparation and presentation, and the peer-review process, during which they learn to evaluate each other’s research.

IFC Launches Innovative Forests Bond to Protect Forests and Promote Climate Finance
 
04:33
On November 8, 2016, IFC opened trading on the London Stock Exchange to mark the listing of its innovative Forests Bond, a first-of-its-kind bond that gives investors the option of getting repaid in either carbon credits or cash. The bond, which raised $152 million, will support IFC’s private sector lending and prevent deforestation in developing countries. Each year, 5.5 million hectares of tropical forest area—an area approximately the size of Costa Rica–are deforested. Protecting forests is critical to keeping global warming under 2 degrees Celsius while offering an important opportunity to boost rural livelihoods and protect vital ecosystems. To do that, we need to mobilize $75 billion to $300 billion in the next decade. Much of this needs to come from the private sector. IFC’s Forests Bond was designed to demonstrate the power of innovative capital-market mechanisms to unlock private sector funds for forest protection. Investors were offered a choice between a cash or carbon-credit coupon. Investors choosing the carbon credit coupon can retire the credits to offset corporate greenhouse gas emissions, or sell them on the carbon market. To date, IFC has raised climate finance through a variety of innovative instruments including $5.6 billion in green bonds.

Slideshow summary of : Incorporation of a Dynamic Root Distribution into CLM4.5: Evaluation of Carbon and Water fluxes over the Amazon Yuanyuan WANG1,2, Zhenghui XIE, and Binghao JIA*1 1.State Key Laboratory of Numerical Modeling for Atmospheric Sciences and Geophysical Fluid Dynamics, Institute of Atmospheric Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing 100029 2.University of Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing 100049 Abstract Roots are responsible for the uptake of water and nutrients by plants and have the plasticity to dynamically respond to different environmental conditions. However, most land surface models currently prescribe rooting profiles as a function only of vegetation type, with no consideration of the surroundings. In this study, a dynamic rooting scheme, which describes root growth as a compromise between water and nitrogen availability, was incorporated into CLM4.5 with carbon--nitrogen (CN) interactions (CLM4.5-CN) to investigate the effects of a dynamic root distribution on eco-hydrological modeling. Two paired numerical simulations were conducted for the Tapajos National Forest km83 (BRSa3) site and the Amazon, one using CLM4.5-CN without the dynamic rooting scheme and the other including the proposed scheme. Simulations for the BRSa3 site showed that inclusion of the dynamic rooting scheme increased the amplitudes and peak values of diurnal gross primary production (GPP) and latent heat flux (LE) for the dry season, and improved the carbon (C) and water cycle modeling by reducing the RMSE of GPP by 0.4 g C m−2 d−1, net ecosystem exchange by 1.96 g C m−2 d−1, LE by 5.0 W m−2, and soil moisture by 0.03 m3 m−3, at the seasonal scale, compared with eddy flux measurements, while having little impact during the wet season. For the Amazon, regional analysis also revealed that vegetation responses (including GPP and LE) to seasonal drought and the severe drought of 2005 were better captured with the dynamic rooting scheme incorporated. http://159.226.119.58/aas/EN/10.1007/s00376-016-5226-8

Pineapple Guava Tour, New Seedling Varieties From a Feijoa Collector and Breeder
 
37:40
Recommendations below. A visit with my friend Mark Albert a collector, grower and accidental breeder of Feijoa, also known as Pineapple Guava. Mark has a large collection of varieties and many of his own that he has grown from seed. The seedlings seem to be outdoing the parents! Mark usually has seedlings to give out at scion exchanges in Northern California, at least the Winter Abundance Festival and the Santa Rosa Scion Exchange put on by California Rare Fruit Growers Redwood chapter. By planting seedlings, anyone can participate in a small way in the improvement of Feijoa. The seedling anyone grows might be the next best thing. Redwood Empire exchange Jan 28, 2017 - Vets Hall, Santa Rosa Winter Abundance Festival, Boonville Fairgrounds, Boonville California February 4th, 9:00 am to 4:00 pm Patrick Schaefer grafts and sells one or more of Mark's varieties. Try [email protected] or go to one of the two scion exchanges above. A NOTE FROM MARK ALBERT ON RECOMMENDED VARIETIES: At the 40 year mark of testing, the list has gotten pretty simple for the north. The north means our Mendoterranean climate zone, or anywhere north of the San Francisco bay, where the cooler climate zone will likely not allow the latest-season southern cultivars to ripen to perfection before our cold temperatures stop the ripening or freeze the hanging fruit. This list has a definite bias toward the home grower, with no commercial goal in mind, and quality of fruit comes before size. The proven cultivars at this point are: Early season (October): Albert’s Pride or Albert’s Joy Middle season (November) : Moore Late Season (December): Albert’s Supreme Because these cultivars have been selected in the north, they will also work in the southern California when they are not ruined by the Santa Ana winds, the hot, dry wind from the east that can cook the ripening fruit in the fall. It does not work the other way: good southern cultivars may not ripen in the north. This is an ongoing experiment, and we are now testing the latest New Zealand cultivars which have recently made their way to the U.S. These are likely to be very good, because they newest cultivars were selected by New Zealand feijoa lovers with a more educated pallet, not by paid academicians, as in the past. Also the biological time factor is that feijoa is a very new fruit, only selected out of the wild in the last 130 years or so from South America. When we look back at the old cultivar names, that’s only 5-6 generations of development. So it makes sense that each generation is higher quality because they are crosses of the best of the previous generation of cultivars. This is how all fruit is improved. The previous 2 waves of New Zealand cultivars were commercial selections and were a bust in California. So these recommendations may change in the next 5-10 years. Also, I may add to this list in about a month after talking to Ken Morrill in the hills above Santa Cruz, and Harvey Corriea in the Sacramento delta area, who are growing the same cultivars.

Climate Change Adaptation Sub-plenary - Q&A (Part 3)
 
08:43
Climate change already affects forests and is expected to affect them even more in the future. The effects of climate change add to the many pressures threatening our forests. While some forest services may be enhanced, many more could be lost. Already in the course of this century, forests may have turned from a net carbon sink to a net carbon source, potentially releasing huge additional quantities of carbon into the atmosphere. The impacts of climate change on forests will have far-reaching social and economic consequences, particularly for poor people who depend on forests that often serve as a safety net during times of economic and ecological hardship. Given the diversity of the worlds forests and the needs of their stakeholders, there seems to be no magic answer for forest adaptation. Some forests may be lost entirely. Nevertheless, forest managers can rely on effective and locally appropriate tools that can help conserve forests and sustain the mix of ecosystem services they provide, even within a changing climate. More than that, forest ecosystems affect us all. Sustaining them can play a key role in reducing social vulnerability far beyond the forest sector.

Seele ICO Review - A peak inside the ICO. Seele.Pro - The first blockchain 4.0 project that will take the cryptocurrency by storm. Seele is powered by an up-scalable Neural Consensus protocol for high throughput concurrency among large scale heterogeneous nodes and is able to form a unique heterogeneous forest multi-chain ecosystem Neural Consensus Protocol A new consensus algorithm named ε-differential agreement (EDA) based on "real numbers" is proposed. EDA provides a concurrent sorting algorithm for large scale nodes and achieves consensus in the order. Preliminary results suggest that consensus performance increases linearly with the number of nodes.

Himlal Baral - Economic evaluation of ecosystem goods and services
 
22:25
Economic evaluation of ecosystem goods and services under different landscape management scenarios Human-induced changes in the natural environment are affecting the provision of ecosystem goods and services (EGS). Land use plans rarely include the value of public ecosystem services such as climate regulation and biodiversity due to difficulties in valuing these services. In this study, we assessed total economic value for five important ecosystem goods and services under five future land-use scenarios using varying levels of costs, prices and discount rates. Results indicated that at higher discount rates normally applied to commercial activities, and assuming the current prices for goods and services, net present value (NPV) was highest for landscape management scenarios aimed at maximising agricultural production. Potential income from services such as carbon and biodiversity does not offset projected income lost from agriculture due to land-use changes. At higher discount rates, NPV was negative for the two scenarios aimed at enhancing the longer term ecological sustainability of the landscape. These results indicate that income from carbon sequestration and biodiversity conservation would need to be considerably higher than current levels in order to justify focusing management of this landscape on ecological outcomes. At lower discount rates (at levels normally associated with public investments), the more ecologically appropriate ‘mosaic farming system’ had the highest NPV, indicating that this type of system might be attractive for investors interested in longer term return horizons or wider public benefits. Higher income from carbon or biodiversity, or increased return from timber by using high value tree species, could potentially make more ecologically appropriate systems profitable at higher discount rates. http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0264837714000581

What is UNEQUAL EXCHANGE? What does UNEQUAL EXCHANGE mean? UNEQUAL EXCHANGE meaning & explanation
 
04:13
What is UNEQUAL EXCHANGE? What does UNEQUAL EXCHANGE mean? UNEQUAL EXCHANGE meaning - UNEQUAL EXCHANGE definition - UNEQUAL EXCHANGE explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ Unequal exchange is a much disputed concept which is used primarily in Marxist economics, but also in ecological economics, to denote forms of exploitation hidden in or underwriting trade. Originating, in the wake of the debate on the Singer-Prebisch thesis, as an explanation of the falling terms of trade for underdeveloped countries, the concept was coined in 1962 by the Greco-French economist Arghiri Emmanuel to denote an exchange taking place where the rate of profit has been internationally equalised, but wage-levels (or those of any other factor of production) have not. It has since acquired a variety of meanings, often linked to other or older traditions which perhaps then raise claims to priority. In the works of Paul Baran, and subsequently adopted in the dependency approach of Andre Gunder Frank, there is a related but distinct concern with the transfer of values due to superprofits. This did not refer to the terms of trade, but to the transfer taking place within multinational corporations (called "monopolies"). Versions of unequal exchange originating within the dependency tradition are commonly based on some such concern with monopoly and center-periphery trade in general. Here, if unequal exchange occurs in trading, the effect is, that producers, investors and consumers incur either higher costs or lower incomes (or both) in the buying and selling of commodities than they would have, if the commodities had traded at their “real” or "true" value. In that case, they are disadvantaged in trading, and their market position is worsened, rather than strengthened. On the other side, the beneficiaries of the trade obtain a superprofit. This term implies that the beneficiaries of unequal exchange are capitalists or entrepreneurs, whereas as understood by Emmanuel the beneficiaries are the high-wage country consumers or workers. The most renowned of those adopting the term is Samir Amin, who tried to link it to his own argument on the interdependent uneven development of rich and poor countries. Ernest Mandel also adopted the term, although his theory was based rather on that of the East-German Marxist Gunther Kohlmey. The most common approach within Marxism is to talk about unequal exchange whenever unequal labour values are being exchanged (e.g., John Roemer), and this type of approach has then been elaborated in recent decades by ecological economists, based instead on, e.g. ecological footprints or energy. Depending on definition, the historical occurrence of unequal exchange can be traced to anything from the origins of trade itself, not limited to the capitalist mode of production, to the origins of significant international wage-differentials, or to the post-war appearance of a significant net-inflow of raw-materials to the developed countries. In the approach of Immanuel Wallerstein the origins of the modern world-system, or what others, such as Ernest Mandel, would call the rise of merchant capitalism, is said to have entailed unequal exchange, although the idea was criticised by Robert Brenner. Another aspect of these theories is the criticism of fundamental assumptions of Ricardian and neoclassical theories of comparative advantage, which could be taken to imply that international trade would have the effect of equalising the economic position of the trading partners. More generally, the concept was a criticism of the idea that the operation of markets would have egalitarian effects, rather than accentuating the market position of the strong and disadvantaging the weak.

Tree's found to communicate through Fungi [Avatar!]
 
04:41
Dr. Suzanne Simard is a professor with the UBC Faculty of Forestry, where she lectures on and researches the role of mycorrhizae and mycorrhizal networks in tree species migrations with climate change disturbance. Networks of mycorrhizal fungal mycelium have recently been discovered by Professor Suzanne Simard and her graduate students to connect the roots of trees and facilitate the sharing of resources in Douglas-fir forests of interior British Columbia, thereby bolstering their resilience against disturbance or stress and facilitating the establishment of new regeneration. Dr. Simard writes: Mycorrhizal fungi form obligate symbioses with trees, where the tree supplies the fungus with carbohydrate energy in return for water and nutrients the fungal mycelia gather from the soil; mycorrhizal networks form when mycelia connect the roots of two or more plants of the same or different species. Graduate student Kevin Beiler has uncovered the extent and architecture of this network through the use of new molecular tools that can distinguish the DNA of one fungal individual from another, or of one tree's roots from another. He has found that all trees in dry interior Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii var. glauca) forests are interconnected, with the largest, oldest trees serving as hubs, much like the hub of a spoked wheel, where younger trees establish within the mycorrhizal network of the old trees. Through careful experimentation, recent graduate Francois Teste determined that survival of these establishing trees was greatly enhanced when they were linked into the network of the old trees.Through the use of stable isotope tracers, he and Amanda Schoonmaker, a recent undergraduate student in Forestry, found that increased survival was associated with belowground transfer of carbon, nitrogen and water from the old trees. This research provides strong evidence that maintaining forest resilience is dependent on conserving mycorrhizal links, and that removal of hub trees could unravel the network and compromise regenerative capacity of the forests. In wetter, mixed-species interior Douglas-fir forests, graduate student Brendan Twieg also used molecular tools to discover that Douglas-fir and paper birch (Betula papyrifera) trees can be linked together by species-rich mycorrhizal networks. We found that the mycorrhizal network serves as a belowground pathway for transfer of carbon from the nutrient-rich deciduous trees to nearby regenerating Douglas-fir seedlings. Moreover, we found that carbon transfer was enhanced when Douglas-fir seedlings were shaded in mid-summer, providing a subsidy that may be important in Douglas-fir survival and growth, thus helping maintain a mixed forest community during early succession. This is not a one-way subsidy, however; graduate Leanne Philip discovered that Douglas-fir supported their birch neighbours in the spring and fall by sending back some of this carbon when the birch was leafless. This back-and-forth flux of resources according to need may be one process that maintains forest diversity and stability. Mycorrhizal networks may be critical in helping forest ecosystems deal with climate change. Maintaining the biological webs that stabilize forests may help conserve genetic resources for future tree migrations, ensure that forest carbon stocks remain intact on the landscape, and conserve species diversity. UBC graduate student Marcus Bingham is finding that maintaining mycorrhizal webs may be more important for the regeneration and stability of the dry than wet interior Douglas-fir forests, where resources are more limited and climate change is expected to have greater impacts. Helping the landscape adapt to climate change will require more than keeping existing forests intact, however. Many scientists are concerned that species will need to migrate at a profoundly more rapid rate than they have in the past, and that humans can facilitate this migration by planting tree species adapted to warm climates in new areas. UBC graduate student Brendan Twieg is starting new research to help us understand whether the presence of appropriate mycorrhizal symbionts in foreign soils may limit the success of tree migrations, and if so, to help us design practices that increase our success at facilitating changes in these forests.

Ecosystem ecology: Theories, methods, lenses
 
43:41
In this first of two lectures on ecosystem ecology, Dr. Whendee Silver presents an overview of the focus and some key currencies in the field. She defines ecosystem ecology as the study of both the organisms and the abiotic environment, and interactions between them, in an area defined by the strength of the connections between components of the system. She notes that ecosystem ecology focuses on stocks, pools, and flows of the basic components of life, energy and nutrients. She uses the example of the carbon cycle as one physical process that is conceptualized and measured within ecosystem ecology, and one that has contemporary relevance in the context of understanding the impacts of global climate change. She notes that the conceptualization of cycles and impacts in ecosystem ecology focuses at the human time scale, rather than the geologic time scale, in part because of measurement and data issues.

SFE Webinar: Fire Adapted Cities - Prescribed Fire Use in Urban and Community Forest Management
 
49:43
A webinar presented by the Southern Fire Exchange and the Southern Regional Extension Forestry. Webinar Summary Prescribed fire is an effective forest and range management tool used to reduce wildfire fuels, manage understory vegetation, and restore/manage ecosystems. Despite its utility, it is less commonly utilized in urban and community forest management. This webinar will present an example of a project burn in Athens, Georgia that successfully used prescribed fire within city limits. Mike Wharton, with the Athens-Clarke County Leisure Services Department will outline project goals, ecological objectives, critical partnerships, community outreach and education, technology and training, and lessons learned essential to the success of utilizing prescribed fire in the Wildland Urban Interface (WUI). This webinar was originally scheduled to include a presentation by Justice Jones on the use of prescribed fire in the Austin, Texas area. Unfortunately technology problems on the day of the webinar cut short his presentation. He will be giving a future webinar in 2017 that will showcase and expand on his Austin success story.

Sagebrush Ecosystems in a Changing Climate and Adaptive Management
 
01:00:04
This webinar was conducted on July 17, 2017 as part of the USGS National Climate Change and Wildlife Science Center Climate Change Science and Management Webinar Series, held in partnership with FWS National Conservation Training Center. Webinar Summary: Sagebrush steppe rangelands comprise a large fraction of North America, but they are in decline due to increases in wildfire and invasive plants, factors that relate strongly to climate and weather variability. When intact, plant communities in sagebrush steppe appear well adapted to cold wet winters and hot dry summers along with low predictability of annual precipitation. However, disturbances such as large fire or conversion of sites to exotic annual grassland sensitize basic ecosystem functions to climate and weather variability, often leading to substantial losses in soil and ecosystem stability. Management responses to wildfire such as seeding, planting, or treatment of exotic invasive plants are pivotal opportunities for hindering or reversing the degradation. However, restoring desirable perennials is often challenging in these environments due to the climate and weather systems. Published and preliminary findings point to several seeding and planting strategies and technologies that are likely to increase success, particularly those that directly address seed and plant adaptation. The presentation gives a brief overview of how these factors are being addressed in research and adaptive management.

Introduction to Agroforestry Systems
 
58:09
Presented by: Rich Straight, US Forest Service Lead Agroforester, USDA National Agroforestry Center, Lincoln, NE View the webinar at http://conservationwebinars.net to earn CEUs. Participants will learn about the five recognized agroforestry practices: Windbreaks, Alleycropping, Silvopasture, Forest Farming and Riparian Forest Buffers. Agroforestry is the combination of traditional agriculture and conventional forestry. Agroforestry has also been described as the intentional combining of agriculture and working trees to create sustainable farming systems. In agroforestry systems, trees or shrubs and their products are intentionally used within agricultural systems, livestock, or forests. Agricultural knowledge, careful selection of species, and good management of trees and crops are needed to optimize the production and positive effects within the system and to minimize negative competitive effects. Agroforestry systems can be advantageous over conventional agricultural and forest production methods through increased productivity, improved economic benefits and social outcomes and the enhanced ecological goods and services provided. This unique management approach is used world-wide today. Agroforestry practices: mitigate the impact of wind and water on soils; shelter crops, livestock and farmsteads from sun and wind; diversify agricultural landscapes and provide wildlife habitat. The result is a more environmentally sustainable farming or ranching enterprise. By providing a more diverse array of potential income opportunities agroforestry can also make a farming or ranching enterprise more economically sustainable.

It is the meaningful exchange of information between two or more living creatures. One definition of communication is "any act by which one person gives to or receives from another person information about that person's needs, desires, perceptions, knowledge, or affective states. Communication may be intentional or unintentional, may involve conventional or unconventional signals, may take linguistic or non-linguistic forms, and may occur through spoken or other modes." [2] Communication requires a sender, a message, and a recipient, although the receiver doesn't have to be present or aware of the sender's intent to communicate at the time of communication; thus communication can occur across vast distances in time and space. Communication requires that the communicating parties share an area of communicative commonality. The communication process is complete once the receiver understands the sender's message. Communicating with others involves three primary steps: ◦Thought: First, information exists in the mind of the sender. This can be a concept, idea, information, or feelings. ◦Encoding: Next, a message is sent to a receiver in words or other symbols. ◦Decoding: Lastly, the receiver translates the words or symbols into a concept or information that a person can understand... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Telecommunication Telecommunication is communication at a distance by technological means, particularly through electrical signals or electromagnetic waves. Due to the many different technologies involved, the word is often used in a plural form, as telecommunications. Early telecommunication technologies included visual signals, such as beacons, smoke signals, semaphore telegraphs, signal flags, and optical heliographs. Other examples of pre-modern telecommunications include audio messages such as coded drumbeats, lung-blown horns, and loud whistles. Electrical and electromagnetic telecommunication technologies include telegraph, telephone, and teleprinter, networks, radio, microwave transmission, fiber optics, communications satellites and the Internet. A revolution in wireless telecommunications began in the 1900s with pioneering developments in radio communications by Nikola Tesla and Guglielmo Marconi. Marconi won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1909 for his efforts. Other highly notable pioneering inventors and developers in the field of electrical and electronic telecommunications include Charles Wheatstone and Samuel Morse (telegraph), Alexander Graham Bell (telephone), Edwin Armstrong, and Lee de Forest (radio), as well as John Logie Baird and Philo Farnsworth (television). The world's effective capacity to exchange information through two-way telecommunication networks grew from 281 petabytes of (optimally compressed) information in 1986, to 471 petabytes in 1993, to 2.2 (optimally compressed) exabytes in 2000, and to 65 (optimally compressed) exabytes in 2007.[8] This is the informational equivalent of two newspaper pages per person per day in 1986, and six entire newspapers per person per day by 2007. Given this growth, telecommunications play an increasingly important role in the world economy and the global telecommunications industry was about a $4.7 trillion sector in 2012. The service revenue of the global telecommunications industry was estimated to be $1.5 trillion in 2010, corresponding to 2.4% of the world's gross domestic product (GDP)...

Q&A with Mark Shepard: What's the role of annual crops on a Restoration Ag farm?
 
01:33
Have an agroforestry or permaculture question for Mark? Use the contact form here: http://www.forestag.com/contact.html Mark Shepard is the CEO of Forest Agriculture Enterprises and runs New Forest Farm, the 106-acre perennial agricultural forest considered by many to be one of the most ambitious sustainable agriculture projects in the United States. New Forest Farm is a planned conversion of a typical row-crops grain farm into a commercial-scale, perennial agricultural ecosystem using oak savanna, successional brushland and eastern woodlands as the ecological models. Trees, shrubs, vines, canes, perennial plants and fungi are planted in association with one another to produce food (for humans and animals), fuel, medicines, and beauty. Hazelnuts, chestnuts, walnuts and various fruits are the primary woody crops. The farm is entirely solar and wind powered and farm equipment is powered with locally produced biofuels that are not taken from the human food chain. Trained in both mechanical engineering and ecology, Mark has developed and patented equipment and processes for the cultivation, harvesting and processing of forest derived agricultural products for human foods and bio fuels production. Mark was certified as a Permaculture designer in 1993 and received his Diploma of Permaculture design from Bill Mollison, the founder of the international Permaculture movement. Mark is founder and board President for Restoration Agriculture Institute and serves on the board of the Southwest Badger Resource Conservation and Development Council. He teaches agroforestry and Permaculture worldwide. Mark is a farmer member of the Organic Valley cooperative, the worlds largest Organic Farmer's marketing co-op, and is the founder and chief Cydermaker for the Shepard's Hard Cyder winery in Viola, Wisconsin.
SFE Webinar: SimpleFFMC - New Fine Dead Fuel Moisture Estimation Tool
 
01:00:27
A Southern Fire Exchange webinar with Jim Brenner from the Florida Forest Service and Dr. Matt Jolly with the USDA Forest Service discussing their work to develop a new fine dead fuel moisture estimation tool and model. Their project created a new fine dead fuel moisture model and online web app that has been specifically developed with and tested on Southeastern vegetative fuels. Webinar Summary Today’s commonly used fuel moisture field guides were developed decades ago without the aid of recent technology and extensive field verification. As such, these guides often poorly predict actual fine dead fuel moisture in many areas, particularly those of the humid Southeastern states. SimpleFFMC is a new fine dead fuel moisture model developed specifically for the Southeastern US that is a highly simplified version of a complex, physically-based fuel moisture model. This new model represents a paradigm shift in fine fuel moisture estimation and it will soon be integrated into computer-based and paper fire behavior field references. To aid in adoption by fire managers, SimpleFFMC has been adapted to create a simple, web-based mobile interface for fuel moisture calculations in the field. This webinar will describe the development of SimpleFFMC and demonstrate the web app. Originally recorded September 2016. ----------------------------------------­­­­­­----------------------------- To access the SimpleFFMC online web app visit: http://www.wfas.net/ffmc/ To download the SimpleFFMC final report and reference tables visit: http://www.wfas.net/ffmc/docs/ For a short fact sheet with information on the development of SimpleFFMC check out the Southern Fire Exchange SimpleFFMC Fact Sheet (pdf): http://southernfireexchange.org/SFE_Publications/factsheets/2016-1.pdf For more information about programs, workshops, and webinars like this one, visit: http://southernfireexchange.org
