Interestingly the ‘ethnic, unemployable and ghetto people’ of the 19th century of whom he speaks so disparagingly found the best way to overcome their difficulties was to form themselves into unions on the basis of location, culture, trade and interest and collectively fight in One Big Union of ordinary people for a more just and equitable world.

Data may help biologists discover why populations of these important fish are declining. There is virtually no old growth left in the state. Understanding the scale of these connections has led to a historic agreement to protect this forest. They found that, despite substantial drought events over the past decade, there was little evidence of lingering effects on the forest canopy. Does this imply much lower disturbance rates in Africa that favour longer-lived trees, or perhaps higher net primary productivity?

As for the trees, they are dismayingly diflicidt to identify. Rapidly-growing weeds soon invade the cleared land and the great diversity of insects, pests and pathogens makes tropical agriculture a formidable task.
