The science that uses tree rings to date and study past and present changes in glaciers.
Domesticated plants and animals have been (and continue to be) raised at scales ranging from the household to massive commercial operations.
This article recognizes the wide range of activities that encompass food production and emphasizes the cultural factors leading to the creation of domesticated organisms.
Domesticated animals tend to have developed from species that are social in the wild and that, like plants, could be bred to increase the traits that are advantageous for people.
Most domesticated animals are more docile than their wild counterparts, and they often produce more , or milk as well.
It was the first profound change in the relationship between fully modern humans and the environment: people evolved into their current form some 200,000 years ago ( provides a chronometric framework for archaeological research.Supervisors: Luke Mander and Angela Coe (The Open University)Funding Status: Funding is in place Project Description Ferns are one of the most successful plant groups on Earth with more than 10,000 species.Molecular data indicate that the majority of extant ferns appeared during a Cretaceous evolutionary radiation, but the fossil record demonstrates that ferns also achieved exceptionally high diversity and abundance in the Carboniferous and Jurassic periods.Education At Geoscience Australia we provide a range of curriculum-linked, hands-on activities to promote geoscience.We produce teaching resources for primary and secondary levels to make that geoscience experience fun, interactive, and relevant.
