Review of grassland ecosystems and of culture and its role in shaping human relationships to nature.
Review of the relationship between vegetation and temperature, and the ecological role of animals.
Review of the literature on the varied important ecological roles of native plants, as well as discussions of symbiosis, biophilia, and an Okanagan worldview of society.
Explores the causes of wildfires and some technical and policy approaches to their management. Investigates ecological corridors and connectivity. Describes the importance of connected landscapes in conservation efforts to support biodiversity and offers examples of such ecological networks from around the world.
In-depth review of zoonotic diseases such as the coronavirus as a consequence of biodiversity loss and ecosystem destruction, a section further exploring approaches to eco-restoration, and more examples of “Blessed Unrest.”
Visits adaptation and urban resilience, the phenomenon of Heat Planet, more on land management and conservation, and a continuation of explorations in “Blessed Unrest,” where people around the world, in powerful local ways, are regenerating a healthy biosphere.
Discusses forest dynamics and ecological intensification in regulating ecosystems, managing ecosystem services, and enriching biodiversity. Offers several examples of eco-restoration work, “Blessed Unrest,” by individuals and organizations around the world.
Visits several examples of restoration in action from around the world, and reviews papers on floodplains, wetlands; discusses partnering with beavers; and considers how regenerative land management addresses heatwaves, droughts, floods and fires. Special guest article on the Fourth Phase of Water by Gerald Pollack.
Reviews the pivotal roles of water cycles and soil ecology in stabilizing ecosystems and the climate.
Focuses on biodiversity and why it’s so important, and regenerative agriculture as a critical path to global environmental health and stability.
Covers a broad selection of eco-restoration articles, including soils, earthworms, water, wetlands, croplands, grasslands and forests. We also discuss how paradigms and peer review both advance and constrain the practice of science.
