Restoring forest landscapes: A question of community rights

About 30 percent of the Earth’s surface is covered by forests, and around 1.6 billion people depend on them for significant contributions to their environments and livelihoods. Yet, 12 million hectares of intact forests are lost in the tropics every year, either through permanent destruction or degradation. Forest Landscape Restoration, FLR, is one of the newer initiatives to be put forward to help solve the problem.

Bamboo: a powerful ally for land restoration

Bamboo can be a powerful ally for land restoration. This strategic resource thrives on problem soils and steep slopes, helps to conserve soil and water, and improves land quality. Its potential is significant – if its benefits are recognized by decision makers and planners. Top 40 Enlightening Spiritual Films of All Time.

Introduction The ongoing climate change is characterized by increased temperatures and altered precipitation patterns.

How tree roots respond to drought

In addition, the frequency, intensity and duration of extreme climatic events, such as droughts, floods, and storms, has increased in recent decades, and a continuation of this trend is predicted (IPCC, 2007, 2014; Cavin et al., 2013). These changes in environmental conditions are affecting terrestrial ecosystems worldwide and have led to a reduction in the global net primary production (Zhao and Running, 2010). Specifically, negative impacts on forest health associated with water limitation are major contributors to forest declines at a global level (Allen et al., 2010; Smith, 2011; Choat et al., 2012; Anderegg et al., 2013b).

Drought is a multidimensional environmental constraint that can provoke tree responses from the molecular to the forest stand level (Hamanishi and Campbell, 2011). Video Gallery – Tarwyn Park. Welcome to the Tarwyn Park Video Gallery.

Peter Andrews - Farming Secrets. Peter Andrews, the veteran horseman who stood dual Melbourne Cup winner Rain Lover, starting off at One Tree Hill in South Australia and then at a new breeding operation he and his wife Ann established on the historic Tarwyn Park in the Bylong valley, NSW has been awarded an Order of Australia Medal (OAM) in the 2011 Australia Day Honours.

Peter Andrews - Farming Secrets

It is not, however, for his lengthy contribution to breeding and racing, but for revolutionary approaches to land care he developed on Tarwyn Park, a very fertile property over underground waterways which was very run down when the Andrews took it over thirty years ago. In the first half of last century, Tarwyn Park was one of the great studs in Australia in the ownership of Herbert Thompson, a member of the family who were pioneers in nearby Widden valley. He stood seven times champion Australian sire Heroic. Tarwyn Park, now a cattle raising farm owned by his son, was in vast contrast to the country around Broken Hill on which Peter Andrews grew up.

"All I see is degradation, eroded gullies, top soil blowing away, bare hills, animals grazing paddocks that are mainly dirt," says Sandy Cornell, who travels through rural areas extensively in her work as a vet. "We're at the tipping point of turning this country into a desert. " Yet a farmer from New South Wales has developed a way of reviving tracts of the Austrlian landscape. Peter Andrews has turned eroded wasteland into fertile ground through natural farming techniques and sympathetic planting, but regulations set by the Australian government have long prevented others from following his lead. Things are starting to change however, as the Saudi government have invited Andrews to "green the Sahara desert" and, closer to home, the former Governor-General, Major General Michael Jeffery, has joined his campaign. Right As Rain Part One - Journeyman Pictures. For over thirty years, farmer and horse breeder, Peter Andrews, has tried to convince scientists, bureaucrats and politicians of the effectiveness of his innovative landscaping methods – what he calls natural sequence farming – which he has developed in an attempt to counteract drought and erosion.

Now some very influential and highly placed Australians have rallied to his cause, while scientific evidence and international interest are also mounting. 03:49:00 – Aerial views of Australian wetlands 06:23:00 – Aerial views of Terwyn Park, Australia 06:50:00 – Horses walking through water 07:31:15 – Flood plain 10:35:00 – Large herd of horses running on plain 10:50:00 – Horse foals 24:00:00 – Peter Andrews landscaping of Australian farmland.

There's increasing evidence to show that trees are able to communicate with each other.

Do trees have brains?

More than that, trees can learn. If that's true — and my experience as a forester convinces me it is — then they must be able to store and transmit information. And scientists are beginning to ask: is it possible that trees possess intelligence, and memories, and emotions? So, to cut to the quick, do trees have brains?

O chamado das árvores. If Agroecology is So Great, Why Aren’t All Farmers Doing It? : Food First. This post is also published on the Huffington Post here. After a half century of pioneering work by farmers and scientists, agroecology has finally penetrated mainstream policy circles. This is due to agroecology’s widespread success on the ground and the tireless efforts of food activists and policy advocates determined to break corporate agriculture’s chokehold on the politics and the purse strings of our food system.

Last month, Friends of the Earth (FoE) published Farming for the Future: Organic and Agroecological Solutions to Feed the World – which was released on the heels of the International Panel of Experts on Sustainable Food Systems’ (IPES) report, From Uniformity to Diversity: A paradigm shift from industrial agriculture to diversified agroecological systems.

Using Agroforestry to Save the Planet. Agroforestry—the use of trees in farming—benefits both farmers and the environment. According to a recent report by Biodiversity International, the Center for International Forestry Research, the World Agroforestry Centre, and Charles Sturt University, forests contribute to the livelihoods of more than 1.6 billion people. Yet, 30 percent of the world’s forests are used primarily for the production of wood products. Agroforestry is defined as the integration of trees and shrubs into crop and animal farming systems. These practices can help landowners diversify products and create social, economic, and environmental benefits. Trees and forests provide more than just food—they can enhance soils, protect biodiversity, preserve precious water supplies, and even help reduce the impacts of climate change.

Teoria da Trofobiose. Teoria da Trofobiose. Trophobiosis. Trophobiosis is a symbiotic association between organisms where food is obtained or provided. The provider of food in the association is referred to as a trophobiont. The name is derived from the Greek τροφή trophē, meaning "nourishment" and -βίωσις -biosis which is short for the English symbiosis.[1] In mutualistic relationships, the production of honeydew by trophobionts is rewarded by removal of dead hemipterans and protection from a variety of predators by the attendant ants. In some relationships the ants will build shelters for the farmed trophobionts, either to protect them or keep them from leaving the area. Some species of ants construct underground rooms to house the trophobionts and carry them between the host plant and housing area daily.
