It would be interesting to see a study on how many researchers feel separated from Ammonia: a gaseous compound of nitrogen and hydrogen (NH3) formed as a byproduct when bacteria decompose substances high in nitrogen.Compost piles thick with manure often emit ammonia when hot.Last summer I saw a timber wolf trotting sedately across an open dune above the water, and time without number rabbits, squirrels and birds, not feeding but seeming to enjoy the peculiar delight that beaches provide.I cannot speak for them, but is it wrong to believe that they may know something akin to the lift of spirit that is mine when standing on the sands?The glossary that follows assumes a definition of ecology--the study of interactions between organisms and their environment--much wider than what fits under the field's habitual statistical persona.Ecofeminism and ecopsychology are mentioned, for example, as are terms from organic gardening and permaculture.Anthropocentric Detour: deep ecologist George Sessions’ term for the ideological turn of mind Western civilization has taken, accompanied by occasional opportunities to return to a less human-centered way of viewing the world (e.g., Maimonides’ belief that the world was good before humans were created, and Spinoza’s thought that mind is found throughout nature).
Analogue Forestry: a method for restoring ecosystems, developed from local Sri Lankan home gardens by the Neo-Synthesis Research Centre (NSRC), that seeks to bring back what grew there originally.
Angle of Repose: the steepest angle that slope, rock, or detritus material settles into without toppling.
Builders of flood-prone roads and sliding hillside homes in California ignore the angle of repose so often that it could be renamed the angle of depose.
Is there any reason they too should not have somewhat the feeling I do there of coming suddenly out of the mountains into an alpine meadow, or a clearing in dense woods, or a plain after traversing rugged broken country?
Animism: a derogatory anthropological term for what most human cultures have believed throughout prehistory: that the Earth is alive and reactive, as are its many places.Some key assumptions: Angiosperms: flowering plants that place their seeds in fruits.The monocots have an embryo with a single cotyledon (seed leaf), three-part flowers, parallel leaf veins, and adventitious root growth.Often has the effect of making the bed of a stream or flood plain rise.
