Giraffes at both sites showed preferences to associate with and avoid specific individuals, but the social bonds between individuals were stronger and more exclusive in the population exposed to high levels of human activity
The study, published in the journal Global Change Biology, suggests the degree to which land has been affected by human activity
is higher than previously reported.
Many animals found on the fringes of human activity
have become less prevalent in Taiwan due to the loss of habitat, and the Forestry Bureau hopes this initiative can bring about greater awareness.
Through indicators such as the Living Planet Index (LPI), provided by the Zoological Society of London (ZSL), the Species Habitat Index (SHI), the IUCN Red List Index (RLI) and the Biodiversity Intactness Index (BII), as well as Planetary Boundaries and the Ecological Footprint, the report paints a singular disturbing picture: human activity
is pushing the planet's natural systems that support life on Earth to the edge.
Using economic and social data from the last five decades, the so-called Earth 3 simulation provides new projections about the future impact of human activity
That is, some people claim that even though human activity
produces carbon dioxide, it is not causing global warming.
If human activity
turns out to be a definitive cause for incidences of cancer and tumors among wild animals, the negative impact of humans on the biodiversity of our planet would suddenly become known as much worse than currently understood.
The study says it is "extremely likely" human activity
is the "dominant cause" of global warming, contradicting the views of president Donald Trump and members of his team.
In this paper, we propose a novel feature extraction framework to describe human activities based on the above optical video capturing method, namely spatial-temporal texture features for 3D human activity
Some scientists say that climatic, biological, and geochemical signatures of human activity
in sediments and ice cores suggests the 1950s as the starting point for a new epoch; others suggest that the first test of a nuclear weapon (by the United States on July 16, 1945) marks the beginning.
Liu, "Response of streamflow to climate change and human activity
in Xitiaoxi river basin in China," Hydrological Processes, vol.
Part of a series of monographs co-produced by the American Geophysical Union, this book deals with the fact that human activity
is now the primary determinant of landscapes and their biological and physical makeup almost everywhere on the planet.
Or are you unconvinced that human activity
is the cause of such chaos?"
The report's value lies in quantifying how much erosion occurs, and what impact a receding shoreline may have on human activity
Checkland's SSM is one of such approaches which emerged in the system movement to deal with complexity of human activity
