- Science is political? Heterogeneity not homogeneity environments in nature.
- I still don't get it, the presence of more than one different 'best' fit organism in a particular environment. How does this not contradict with the theory of evolution?
- Heterogeneity in human communities.
- The mistake of forcing homogeneity in human communities.
- Quran: mustard seed (given as an example of a very small thing).
- Documenting species of Ferdaws Garden, as part of the Human Centered Design course.
- "Why species that live in the same environment are often profoundly different?"
- "A plant utilizing sunlight, a fungus living on the plant, a herbivore eating the plant and a parasitic worm living in the herbivore should all coexist in the same community."
- "There are no homogeneous environments in nature."
- "What appears to the human observer as a homogeneous environment may, to an organism within it, be a mosaic of the intolerable and the adequate."
- "To a mustard seed, a grain of soil is a mountain; and to a caterpillar, a single leaf may represent a lifetime’s diet."
- "A seed lying in the shadow of a leaf may be inhibited in its germination while a seed lying outside that shadow germinates freely."
- Gradients in an environment can also be:
- in space: altitude
- in time
- rhythmic: daily and seasonal cycles
- directional: the accumulation of a pollutant in a lake
- erratic: fires, hailstorms and typhoons
- "Heterogeneity can alter communities by interrupting what would otherwise be a steady march to an equilibrium state"
- Why are there no homogeneous environments in nature?
- What is the effect of artificially enforcing homogeneous man made environments?
- What is the relationship, if any, between homogeneity and diversity?
