properties. Systems ecology focuses on interactions and transactions within and between biological and ecological systems, and is especially concerned with the way the functioning of ecosystems can be influenced by human interventions.

Watershed-Scale Dynamics of Tennessee Farmland Enrollment in the ...
Increased national focus on environmental quality requires Extension professionals to evaluate conservation policies and adapt outreach strategies accordingly. This case study applies spatial analysis techniques to evaluate watershed-scale changes in Tennessee farmland enrolled in the Conservation Reserve Program 1997-2007, focusing on areas that may contribute to stream quality impairment. Results indicate that cumulative enrollment in the program has decreased significantly less in watersheds targeted by interagency outreach efforts than in the remainder of the state. Integration of geospatial technologies into cooperative ... market research, surveys and trends


2008 Pig Book - Citizens Against Government Waste:
If Washington, D.C. were to export a commodity, it would be rhetoric.  Politicians especially love to talk about fiscal responsibility.  On March 13, 2008 the Senate had an opportunity to test that rhetoric when Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) offered an amendment to impose a one-year moratorium on earmarks.  Pork beat talk as the measure failed by a vote of 29-71. In the House of Representatives, Republicans want a one-year moratorium but will not unilaterally disarm.  Democrats won’t agree because of objections from big porkers such as House Defense Appropriations Subcommittee Chairman John Murtha ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Updated: NPCA Points Out Threats to Grand Canyon National Park in New Report
A report out today from the National Parks Conservation Association outlines threats to Grand Canyon National Park and makes recommendations for how the health of the park can be improved. Does the Obama administration have the political fortitude, let alone the political capital, to protect Grand Canyon National Park from the myriad threats facing it? That's a good question in light of a report that highlights those threats and, in the process, exposes the shortcomings of the administration. No doubt, many of the problems -- funding backlogs, mining pressures, air-quality and sound-quality issues -- were inherited by the ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Timber update: Western Oregon Task Force, Defazio and BLM
On July 22, the Administration released the Final Report of the Western Oregon Task Force. The Task Force visited Oregon in January of this year and interviewed various stakeholders interested in BLM land management policies. The report is far from providing a way for the BLM to move forward with timber management in the absence of the Western Oregon Plan Revisions (WOPR), which was withdrawn by Interior Secretary Ken Salazar on July 16, 2009. The 33 page report instead calls for the formation of committees, and processes that largely sidestep any effort to resolve the issues that have been hampering the management of these ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
