Deep within the jungle the place the borders of Vietnam meet these of Laos and Cambodia is a area referred to as "the misplaced global. " huge mammals by no means obvious sooner than through Western technology have popped up often in those mountains within the final decade, together with a half-goat/half-ox, a deer that barks, and an in depth relative of the approximately extinct Javan rhino. In an age while scientists are all for studying a brand new form of tube malicious program, the idea of discovering and naming a brand new huge terrestrial mammal is marvelous, and natural world biologists from around the globe are flocking to this risky area. the result's a race among protection and destruction.
Containing learn collected from well-known biologists, conservationists, indigenous peoples, former POWs, ex-Viet Cong, and the 1st U. S. ambassador to Vietnam because the war's finish, Gold Rush within the Jungle is going deep into the valleys, hills, and hollows of Vietnam to discover the examine, the foreign alternate in endangered species, the lingering results of Agent Orange, and the trouble of a handful of biologists to avoid wasting the world's rarest animals.

9) 34 / Bottom Soils, Sediment, and Pond Aquaculture At a given temperature the radius (diameter = 2r) of the pore or capillary tube determines how high water will rise through capillarity. Viscosity and specific weight of water decreases with increasing temperature, so capillary rise will vary with temperature. In soil the pores are interconnected and act like a capillary tube. Thus, water can rise from the water table into dry soil through capillarity. Capillarity in soil increases in the following order: sand < silt < silty clay < clay.
Concentration from organic carbon concentration in surface soils of terrestrial ecosystems. 7. There are three basic types of organic soil material. 5 Fibric materials consist largely of plant fibers. 15-mm sieve. Fibric soil materials have a fiber content, after hand rubbing, of 75% or more of the soil volume. Coarse fragments of wood and mineral layers are excluded when determining the volume of fiber. Peat is a fibric soil material. Sapric materials contain highly decomposed organic matter. After rubbing, the fiber content is less than 18-20% of the soil volume.
This makes it possible for large amounts of partially decomposed organic matter to accumulate. Time is an important factor, because soil fonnation processes are very slow. Thousands of years have passed during the development of soils seen at a particular place on the land surface. Unfortunately, poor soil management can result in great damage to surface soils within a period of a few years. For example, destruction of vegetation on soil surfaces in humid regions can accelerate erosion and the fertile topsoil can be lost quickly.
