He had recently read the book New England's Prospect, in which the English traveler William Wood recounted his 1633 voyage to southern New England and described for English readers the landscape he had found thereDestination, Rates & Speeds Stock Image 10Book Condition: NewIf the nature of Concord in the 1850sa nature which many Americans now romanticize as the idyllic world of Thoreau's own Waldenwas as "maimed" and "imperfect" as he said, what are we to make of the wholeness and perfection which he thought preceded it? It is tempting to believe that when the Europeans arrived in the New World they confronted Virgin Land, the Forest Primeval, a wilderness which had existed for eons uninfluenced by human handsThe first generation of academic ecologists, led by Frederic Clements, defined the communities they studied literally as superorganisms which experienced birth, growth, maturity, and sometimes death much as individual plants and animals didBookseller Inventory # BZE9780809016341 More Information About This Seller Ask Bookseller a Question Buy New US$ 19.45 Convert Currency Add to Basket Shipping: FREE From United Kingdom to U.S.AThe model forced one to assume that any given community was gradually working either to become or to remain a climax, with the result that the dynamics of nonclimax communities were too easily ignoredand turkeys I learned that black oak worked best for the bottom of ships because it was more resistant to some of the sea life that would bore into the hulls of shipsWith the tools of both historian and ecologist, Cronon constructs an interdisciplinary analysis of how the land and the people influenced one another, and how that complex web of relationships shaped New England's communitiesJan 24, 2015 Samuel rated it it was amazing Cronon is a very clear writerI have opted for a similar approach, albeit for a somewhat larger regionEventually the damage was enormous leading to more inconsistent temperatures, the drying of some rivers and the flooding of othersBut despite its strengths, the choice of a small region has one crucial problem: how do we locate its boundaries? Traditionally in anthropology, this has simply involved the area within which people conduct their subsistence activities, often described using "ethno-ecological" techniques which analyze the way the inhabitants themselves conceive of their territory.17 Yet anthropologists are increasingly aware, as historians have long known, that the development of a world capitalist system has brought more and more people into trade and market relations which lie well beyond the boundaries of their local ecosystemsJacobs, University of California, Santa Barbara Wilcomb EEstablished seller since 2000But if we avoid assumptions about environmental equilibrium, the instability of human relations with the environment can be used to explain both cultural and ecological transformations

Its equilibrium state defined the mature forest "organism," so that all members of the community could be interpreted as functioning to maintain the stability of the wholeChanges in the Land: Indians, Colonists and the Ecology of New England 5 out of 5 based on 0 ratingsProfessor Temple, in his interview with Feldman, is currently describing how Leopolds descriptions have allowed them know when spring flowers bloomed in his time, and at what temperatures, and how human-influenced climate change has now brought earlier blooms to WisconsinIndian economies were now tied to international markets, and they had an incentive to produce more than just self-sufficient numbers of productsEcologists trying to define climax and succession for a region like New England were faced with an environment massively altered by human beings, yet their research program demanded that they determine what that environment would have been like without a human presenceBibliographic informationTitleChanges in the Land: Indians, Colonists, and the Ecology of New EnglandAuthorWilliam CrononPublisherFarrar, Straus and Giroux, 2011ISBN142992828X, 9781429928281Length288 pagesSubjectsTravel:United States:Northeast:New England (CT, MA, ME, NH, RI, VT)Nature / EcologyTravel / United States / Northeast / New England (CT, MA, ME, NH, RI, VT)  Export CitationBiBTeXEndNoteRefManChanges in the Land: Indians, Colonists, and the Ecology of New England Cronon, William ISBN10: 0809016346 ISBN13:9780809016341 New Quantity Available: > 20 Seller: Paperbackshop-US (Wood Dale, IL, U.S.A.)
