houses 30 faculty with interests in all aspects of ecosystem function, from the cellular and molecular scale to the organismal and landscape scale, and the role of humans in modifying these ecosystems. Paul Sanborn and master's student Lesley Dampier are working with the Yukon Geological Survey to explore the relationships between soil development and glacial history in the central Yukon Plateau, near Carmacks, a small community in Yukon Territory. The eastern edge of their study area was overridden several times by the Cordilleran Ice Sheet. The retreat of the last glaciation occurred approximately 12,000 years ago, ...
refers to the combined physical and biological components of an environment. An ecosystem is generally an area within the natural environment in which physical ( abiotic ) factors of the environment, such as rocks and soil, function together along with interdependent ( biotic ) organisms , such as plants and animals, within the same habitat to create a stable system. Ecosystems can be permanent or temporary. Ecosystems usually form a number of food webs . Ecosystem is a functional unit consisting of living things in a given area, non-living chemical and physical factors of their environment, linked together through nutrient ...

ecosystem: Definition from
Complex of living organisms, their physical environment, and all their interrelationships in a particular unit of space. An ecosystem's abiotic (nonbiological) constituents include minerals, climate, soil, water, sunlight, and all other nonliving elements; its biotic constituents consist of all its living members. Two major forces link these constituents: the flow of energy and the cycling of nutrients. The fundamental source of energy in almost all ecosystems is radiant energy from the sun; energy and organic matter are passed along an ecosystem's food chain . The study of ecosystems became increasingly sophisticated ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Ecosystem in the surf imperiled by oil spill
Pompano and whiting patrol for them as they dart for cover in the wave wash. Ghost crabs, sandpipers and other shore birds feast on their soft insides and toss their fragile shells aside. Anglers seek them for bait. Kids hunt them for "sea monsters" to put in sand castle moats. The little crustaceans teem in a narrow tidal zone just off the hot summer sand � the beginning of the vast Gulf of Mexico food chain. But these vital creatures and those that depend on them are threatened by toxic oil still lurking in the Gulf and deposits of crude already under the sands of Panhandle beaches. "As the oil comes in, it gets ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Recent honors for UC Davis faculty and staff
Parrella, chair of the Department of Entomology with a joint appointment in plant sciences, develops integrated pest management strategies for ornamental crops, with an emphasis on biological control. He initiated what has become an annual conference on insect and disease management in ornamentals, sponsored by the Society of American Florists and first held in 1985. Reid, of the Department of Plant Sciences, is an expert in postharvest physiology and handling of ornamental crops, conducting research on the senescence of ornamental plants, particularly cut flowers and potted plants. With a partial appointment in Cooperative ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

The concept was introduced by Moore in the Harvard Business Review in May/June 1993, and won the McKinsey Award for article of the year. Moore wrote - An economic community supported by a foundation of interacting organizations and individuals—the organisms of the business world. This economic community produces goods and services of value to customers, who are themselves members of the ecosystem. The member organizations also include suppliers, lead producers, competitors, and other stakeholders. Over time, they co-evolve their capabilities and roles, and tend to align themselves with the directions set by one or more ...
