Other plants, like vines, grow on the big trees. Primary forest refers to untouched, pristine forest that exists in its original condition. Agriculture, the logging industry, fuelwood collection and cattle ranching directly consume the largest amounts of rainforest land throughout the world, respectively ( Figure 3 ).

In: Malhotra, G. (ed.), Environmental Growth: A global perspective. To pick this corpus apart by citing an antecedent, in the writings of some prominent nineteenth-century anarchists, for an idea that I developed in this whole, and thereby deal with only part of what I have tried to integrate into a meaningful and relevant whole for our times, is simply fatuous.

Current extensive logging in boreal forests may soon cause their disappearance. The rain forests of Central Africa are believed to originate from a number of small, isolated patches of forest, called refugia (see page 52), that survived the dry African climate during the last Ice Age. Complex rainforests have several layers and most or all plant forms (e.g. lianas, epiphytes). All books are in clear copy here, and all files are secure so don't worry about it.

Like the neoliberals, the neo-environmentalists are attempting to break through the lines of an old orthodoxy that is visibly exhausted and confused. The role of nontimber tree products in household food procurement strategies: Profile of a Sri Lankan village. All the main monasteries, encouraged to be self-sufficient since the time of St Benedict, [45] at Whitefriars, Blackfriars, Charterhouse and Holborn had their own gardens in which fruit was grown. [46] In the thirteenth century fruit was extensively grown in the Royal Gardens at Tower Hill and Westminster. [47] But fruit growing was not confined to the rich and monastic orders, though few records survive of peasant cultivation, Langland in Piers Ploughman of 1362 mentions that the poor ate baked apples and cherries. [48] Surplus fruits from the monasteries and Royal gardens, and from the Manor farming systems were sold at the ‘Market Cross’ at this time and this sale of fruit and other crops became so profitable that the system of renting gardens and orchards to grow especially for market became established. [49] This market gardening first developed in and around London in the late thirteenth and fourteenth centuries.
