Callanish Stones The Callanish Stones (or "Callanish I", Clachan Chalanais or Tursachan Chalanais in Gaelic) are an arrangement of standing stones placed in a cruciform pattern with a central stone circle. They were erected in the late Neolithic era, and were a focus for ritual activity during the Bronze Age. They are near the village of Callanish (Gaelic: Calanais) on the west coast of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides, Scotland. Location[edit] The Callanish Stones (grid reference NB213330) are situated on a low ridge above the waters of Loch Roag with the hills of Great Bernera as a backdrop.[1] Management[edit]

That is, until last summer. It was a summer without yips. Aerial surveys supported the implications of that silent summer—the wolves of Isle Royale did not produce pups. As the wolf population has declined to eight individuals, all closely related, their ability to survive and reproduce has declined as well in a phenomenon known as inbreeding depression.

Porteuse d'un sens et d'une symbolique, la couleur ne peut donc être choisie à la légère, d'autant plus sur une page web qui va être vu par des milliers de personnes venues de tous horizons. Vous devrez tenir compte de l'ambiance que vous désirez créer, de l'information qui accompagne la couleur, du profil des visiteurs, etc. Ensuite vient la question subjective du bon goût et de l'harmonie, car si tout le monde s'accorde pour dire que bleu marine et noir ne font pas des merveilles, qu'en est-il pour le rose et le rouge ? Une chose est certaine, outre un site qui désire fortement se démarquer, nous éviterons les harmonies trop osées de couleurs.
