The professional study of dry grasslands falls under the category of rangeland management, which focuses on ecosystem services associated with the grass-dominated arid and semi-arid rangelands of the world. Rangelands account for an estimated 70% of the earth's landmass; thus, many cultures including those of the United States are indebted to. Ericksen, P., Manssouri, M. and Downie, K.

The Scramble for Africa, also called the Partition of Africa or the Conquest of Africa, was the invasion, occupation, division, and colonisation of African territory by European powers during a short period known to historians as the New Imperialism (between and ). In , only 10 percent of Africa was under formal European control; by this had increased to almost 90 percent of. This book thoroughly examines Fry and Drew's highly influential 'Tropical Architecture' in West Africa and India, whilst also discussing their British work, such as their post World War II projects for the Festival of Britain, Harlow New Town, Pilkington Brothers’ Headquarters and Coychurch Crematorium.

Mapping livestock-orientated agricultural production systems for the developing world. Agricultural Systems The output of NDVI is a new image file/layer. Values of NDVI can range from to +, but values less than zero typically do not have any ecological meaning, so the range of the index is truncated to to + Higher values signify a larger difference between the red and near infrared radiation recorded by the sensor - a condition associated with highly photosynthetically-active vegetation.
