In this the organism is not a passive recipient of external circumstances; the relationship is interactive. Aggradation: a downward accumulation of stream-carried inorganic matter.
Often has the effect of making the bed of a stream or flood plain rise.
Builders of flood-prone roads and sliding hillside homes in California ignore the angle of repose so often that it could be renamed the angle of depose.
Animals: the animal kingdom branches into the deuterostomes (mouth and anus develop separately) and the protostomes.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, half the water pollution in the U. (There seems to be quite a bit of research done on organisms separated from their original group.
It would be interesting to see a study on how many researchers feel separated from Ammonia: a gaseous compound of nitrogen and hydrogen (NH3) formed as a byproduct when bacteria decompose substances high in nitrogen.Although designed for technical correctness and clarity, this glossary follows the practice in the Jung and Freud glossaries at this site of letting in a bit of humor here and there: for levity, for anecdote, and for an occasional thumb in the puritanical eye that closes itself to any information not dressed up in stiff, Latinized nomenclature (see the entry for English, Latinized). offer incentives for sealing off these unused wells.Abandoned Wells: a hazard because wells left on vacated lands can channel water contaminated by pesticides and fertilizer straight down into the water table. Abrasion: the wearing away of rock surfaces by small particles moved by air or water.Abrasiveness also seems to be the one quality currently shared by most political appointees and prominent heads of state. Acid: a substance with a p H less than 7 due to prevalent hydrogen ions. The human stomach contains hydrochloric acid with a p H of 1; battery acid is stronger, but not by much. Acid Rain: precipitation heavy with nitric and sulfuric acid.Most of it is generated by sulfur dioxide and nitrogen dioxide (air pollution). Results include fish and plant deaths, corrosion, groundwater pollution, and soil erosion. Actinomycetes: formerly classified as fungi because of their filaments, the actinomycetales include many types of soil bacteria.As an original data compiler, Experian works with hundreds of public and proprietary data sources to reach over 98% of the U. The glossary that follows assumes a definition of ecology--the study of interactions between organisms and their environment--much wider than what fits under the field's habitual statistical persona.Monocots include grasses, orchids, palms, and cattails, and dicots include oaks, sycamores, and maples.Angle of Repose: the steepest angle that slope, rock, or detritus material settles into without toppling.Ecofeminism and ecopsychology are mentioned, for example, as are terms from organic gardening and permaculture.Because the life sciences messily overlap (that's life), terms from botany, biology, geology, chemistry, meteorology, and agriculture are included as well.
