The point of writing a scientific paper is to communicate the findings and significance of your research. Always envision yourself writing to a reader who (a) isn't familiar with your study area, samples, or methods, (b) may be (and as a scientist should be) skeptical of the claims you are making, and (c) probably has more pressing things to do with their time and so will skip your article unless you persuade him or her of its clarity and significance. No one will be obligated to read your paper, so you have to persuade them to start reading, and you have to write clearly enough that they keep reading.

The ecosystem I choose to analyze is the tropical rain forest. These forests contain large
trees and dense vegetation with warm temperatures year round accompanied by frequent rainfall.
Tropical rain forests also have very diverse species of plants and animals; there is a very high
level of biodiversity present there as well. Most trees have very short roots, particularly taller
trees, while others have deeper roots. The soil is very thin because the tree branches and leaves
keep the ground shaded and void of sunlight. This

“Movement” began to refer specifically to groups of people coming together to seek political, economic, cultural, but especially social change. For example, the us civil rights, black power, anti-war student, women’s ecology and gay movements promoted a new label: social movements.

manufacturing, citizens of America began to concern themselves with not only the quality of American product, but also with how much this manufacturing was leaving scars across the landscape. The relatively new sciences of ecology and environmental studies while still in its infancy, spoke with a voice of social outcry. The giant manufacturing corporations were destroying the air, land, and water, and the very same industries, which had made this country strong, were soon to become the offending agents. Americans began to view these corporate giants with great disdain; seeing these companies as being socially responsible for our future generations. The great behemoths of corporate American and

Look Back at the Industrial Revolution
The Industrial Revolution is a very broad subject. The industrialization of society was a process that took place over several years. The revolution started in the mid-1700s, and the impact is still visible in the 20th century. The Industrial Revolution defined in our textbook, Essential environment: The science behind the stories (3rd edition), is, "The shift in the mid-1700s from rural life, animal-powered agriculture, and manufacturing by

With the economic needs have emerged new industrial technologies, technologies of extraction processes. And could continue indefinitely, because there is no field in which technology is not present: in the economic, industrial, social, political, scientific, legislative, educational etc. as it allows an improvement of the end result or a simplification of the intermediate processes. Very associated with this is the concept of BAT (Best Avaliable Technology). This term is based on many of the modern concepts of ecology and sustainability, through the continuous improvement of the

Explanations of Criminal Behavior
In the early 1900s, sociologists at the University of Chicago applied the concept of social disorganization to the explanation of crime, delinquency, and other social problems. With origins in the study of ecology, social disorganization refers to the failure of social organizations or social institutions in certain neighborhoods and communities. Robert Ezra Park’s research “demonstrated that criminal behavior was independent of individual characteristics and much more dependent on disruptive social forces” (23). Park’s social disorganization theory forms the basis for several other theories in contemporary criminology. For example, the theories that have

resistance is seen as an ecological problem. This includes both the ecology of resistance genes and that of the resistant bacteria themselves. Little is known about the effects of sub inhibitory concentrations of antibiotics and disinfectants on environmental bacteria, especially with respect to resistance. According to the present state of our knowledge, the impact on the frequency of resistance transfer by anti-bacterial present in the environment is questionable. The input of resistant bacteria into the environment seems to be an important source of resistance in the environment. The possible impact of resistant bacteria on the environment is not yet known.

As Paul Hawken, an environmentalist and author of "Ecology of Commerce", explains, "the single most damaging aspect of the present economic system is that the expense of destroying the earth is largely absent fro prices set at the marketplace" (13). Market prices set for products don't include the cost that future generations will have to pay to clean up the mess the current economy is fueling right now. An economy based on the rapid depletion of its own non-renewable resources is certainly destined for doom, while protection of these resources will save the businesses or corporations money while protecting what fuels it.

The ocean covers roughly two thirds of the Earth’s surface area, and as such is the most valuable resource that we have. Every year through mal-treatment and abuse we irreparably damage our ocean and the ecology found within it. Instead of focusing on what we can gain through strip mining the ocean of its treasures, work needs to be done to establish a safeguard for its preservation. Late President and naturalist Theodore Roosevelt stated “To waste, to destroy, our natural resources, to skin and exhaust the [ocean] instead of using it so as to increase it’s usefulness, will result in undermining in the days of our children the very property which we ought by to hand down to them amplified

This ‘gap’ in cooperative communication among multilateral stakeholders within an interconnected watershed, even with the likely presence of the usually reactive and political boundary-constraint state regulations, makes it necessary for the institutionalisation of an ecological-scale cooperative network of stakeholders. This concept supports an integrated management style for interconnected natural resources; resonating strongly with the Integrated Water

Disease and Evolution
The human body has been plagued with diseases since the beginning of time—pathogens like viruses and bacteria have made us privy to Mother Nature. As humans evolve, so do the diseases we are susceptible to. Some diseases that were once rare have become common, others have disappeared and newer, more daunting ones have emerged. Many of these changes have taken place in the wake of important transformations in human civilizations and ecology. It is therefore feasible to propose that diseases succeed and fail in response to humanity's advances. Natural selection is unable to provide us with perfect protection against all pathogens, because they tend to evolve much faster
