#1. A river flow freely from its source. - Author: Lailah Gifty Akita
Aquatic Ecosystems quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#2. Compared to forest or aquatic ecosystems, grassland is unstable. It requires rather precise geological and climatic conditions, and if these conditions are not maintained
if too much rain falls, or too little
it quickly turns into forest or desert, both of which are dominated by woody plants. This instability is reflected in the spectacular but brief careers of various grassland faunas. Humanity, with its dazzling symbioses, preadaptations, and neoteny, is the most spectacular of these
and may well be the briefest. - Author: David Rains Wallace
Aquatic Ecosystems quotes by David Rains Wallace
#3. If we begin to diligently care for the environment, it will greatly improve human health. - Author: Lailah Gifty Akita
Aquatic Ecosystems quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#4. Fresh drinking water is an issue of primary importance, since it is indispensable for human life and for supporting terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems. Sources of fresh water are necessary for health care, agriculture and industry. Water supplies used to be relatively constant, but now in many places demand exceeds the sustainable - Author: Anonymous
Aquatic Ecosystems quotes by Anonymous
#5. The G8 nations, together with the five major emerging economies of China, India, South Africa, Brazil, Mexico, use almost three-quarters of the Earth's biocapacity - the capacity of the world's ecosystems to produce natural resources and to reduce harmful substances. - Author: Sigmar Gabriel
Aquatic Ecosystems quotes by Sigmar Gabriel
#6. If we do not change our way of life, and fast, we will destroy ourselves by continuing to pollute the environment that sustains us, abusing natural resources, poisoning our food supply, destroying large ecosystems, contaminating the air, and perpetuating climate change. - Author: Joseph P. Kauffman
Aquatic Ecosystems quotes by Joseph P. Kauffman
#7. bananaland, where the jungle had been leveled and replaced by endless acres of banana trees, each displaying bunches of bananas enclosed in bright blue plastic bags. The bags would be filled with insecticide and chemicals deemed essential to marketing bananas where winter was cold and people liked their fruit in uniform: industrial agriculture gone tropical. Later, after the harvest, many of the bags ended up in the Caribbean, where they would be mistaken for jellyfish and eaten by turtles that would then choke to death. Unlike the complex ecosystems of the rainforest and jungle, mono-crop plantings like bananas couldn't hold the ground; when the hard rains fell - it - Author: J.J. Henderson
Aquatic Ecosystems quotes by J.J. Henderson
#8. What's sad is that nobody knows the constitution of the ecosystem that has just been destroyed. Is it an important future food? Is it an important medicine? What can it do for future generations - or present generations? - Author: Horst Rechelbacher
Aquatic Ecosystems quotes by Horst Rechelbacher
#9. Scientists have been saying, for an awfully long time, that we're all interconnected. Scientists would use the word 'ecosystem' to express that idea. Obviously, people can't survive without air and water, and we rely on plants and animals for food, and plants and animals rely on us to preserve their habitats. - Author: Naomi Oreskes
Aquatic Ecosystems quotes by Naomi Oreskes
#10. Where else is fatness at a premium? The answer is clear. There are two classes of mammals which are liable to accumulate large quantities of adipose tissue - hibernating mammals and aquatic mammals. - Author: Elaine Morgan
Aquatic Ecosystems quotes by Elaine Morgan
#11. Each of these [bacterial] species are masterpieces of evolution. Each has persisted for thousands to millions of years. Each is exquisitely adapted to the environment in which it lives, interlocked with other species to form ecosystems upon which our own lives depend in ways we have not begun even to imagine. - Author: E. O. Wilson
Aquatic Ecosystems quotes by E. O. Wilson
#12. Another way Mother Nature builds resilience is by being very federal in how she self-organizes. She nests her communities - which are analogous to states, counties, and towns - within a flexible framework that makes the whole more than the sum of its parts. That is, she's built on trillions and trillions of small-scale networks, starting with microorganisms and building into bigger and bigger ecosystems. But each one is a little community, naturally adapting and evolving in order to survive and thrive. - Author: Thomas L. Friedman
Aquatic Ecosystems quotes by Thomas L. Friedman
#13. We have the capacity to create a remarkably different economy: one that can restore ecosystems and protect the environment while bringing forth innovation, prosperity, meaningful work, and true security. - Author: Paul Hawken
Aquatic Ecosystems quotes by Paul Hawken
#14. We don't think a sustainable society need be stagnant, boring, uniform, or rigid. It need not be, and probably could not be, centrally controlled or authoritarian. It could be a world that has the time, the resources, and the will to correct its mistakes, to innovate, to preserve the fertility of its planetary ecosystems. It could focus on mindfully increasing quality of life rather than on mindlessly expanding material consumption and the physical capital stock. - Author: Donella H. Meadows
Aquatic Ecosystems quotes by Donella H. Meadows
#15. The marketplace has many similarities to nature's rainforest and oceanic ecosystems. Left to their own devices, the marketplace and the earth's ecosystems are self-regulating. Neither requires our forceful intervention to establish a holistic balance in which a diversity of complimentary niches can evolve. Aggression in the marketplace or destruction in a natural ecosystem upsets this balance. Some of the niches are destroyed along with their occupants. Diversity is lost. - Author: Mary J. Ruwart
Aquatic Ecosystems quotes by Mary J. Ruwart
#16. Since nature has the most sustainable ecosystem and since ultimately agriculture comes out of nature, our standard for a sustainable world should be nature's own ecosystem. - Author: Wes Jackson
Aquatic Ecosystems quotes by Wes Jackson
#17. An artist may sustain a body of work as an ecosystem, in which every part is used to every advantage, not consuming any part without regenerating it. - Author: Jan Peacock
Aquatic Ecosystems quotes by Jan Peacock
#18. I run from Horatio Street down just past Battery Park City and back. It's amazing to run and see the Statue of Liberty and the ferries coming in. People think if you're not near Central Park, there's nowhere to go, but there's a whole ecosystem happening down here. - Author: Andy Cohen
Aquatic Ecosystems quotes by Andy Cohen
#19. Only a Systemic approach of organisations can produce sustainable changes because companies are ecosystems and as such are alive - Author: Denis Gorce-Bourge
Aquatic Ecosystems quotes by Denis Gorce-Bourge
#20. I think that the environmental movement is wisely moving away from a largely emotion-based argument for the spiritual or intrinsic value of Nature with a capital "N" and evolving toward a very hard-nosed case for the economic value of natural capital, ecosystem services, biodiversity, etc. - Author: Edward Norton
Aquatic Ecosystems quotes by Edward Norton
#21. The love for God is the love to protect the environment. - Author: Lailah Gifty Akita
Aquatic Ecosystems quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#22. We have a duty to rescue our closest living relatives as part of our wider responsibilities to conserve the ecosystems they inhabit - Author: Klaus Topfer
Aquatic Ecosystems quotes by Klaus Topfer
#23. I am beginning to understand that the stream the scientists are studying is not just a little creek. It's a river of energy that moves across regions in great geographic cycles. Here, life and death are only different points on a continuum. The stream flows in a circle through time and space, turning death into life across coastal ecosystems, as it has for more than a million years. But such streams no longer flow in the places where most of us live. - Author: Kathleen Moore
Aquatic Ecosystems quotes by Kathleen Moore
#24. Hartwell's subconscious was treated to a lengthy reel of the evolutionary tract of cetaceans – from their early days as hoofed creatures with triangular teeth like wolves, to cat-like creatures, to early variations of the hippopotamus, to bottlenose dolphins and Orca, the 'killer whale', which is the largest species of dolphin. The hybrid mammal also had the ability to convert to a smaller aquatic mammal, capable of diving into water and hiding beneath the surface to avoid birds of prey. - Author: Phil Wohl
Aquatic Ecosystems quotes by Phil Wohl
#25. The question for me is whether we can keep Earth a safe, pleasant place for humankind and the ecosystems we rely on. - Author: Kate Sheppard
Aquatic Ecosystems quotes by Kate Sheppard
#26. Do you know what my favorite renewable fuel is? An ecosystem for innovation. - Author: Thomas Friedman
Aquatic Ecosystems quotes by Thomas Friedman
#27. When the word began to get out, the idea of tying imitations of aquatic worms was not met with universal approval in the fly-fishing community. It seems that worms had somehow gotten a bad name. I think a fishing pal of mine hit it on the head when he said, It just pisses them off that you can catch trout, I mean really big trout, on a fly that a five-year old can tie in twenty seconds! - Author: Ed Engle
Aquatic Ecosystems quotes by Ed Engle
#28. We are surrounded by a lot of failed ecosystems; the moon being one, Mars, Venus. There's evidence of water on Mars and rivers and it didn't take. Also, we have planets to guard us like Jupiter and Saturn that take the hits of the comets. It is miraculous that we exist on this planet, that it took. - Author: Robin Williams
Aquatic Ecosystems quotes by Robin Williams
#29. I turned to the teeming small creatures that can be held between the thumb and forefinger: the little things that compose the foundation of our ecosystems, the little things, as I like to say, who run the world. - Author: E. O. Wilson
Aquatic Ecosystems quotes by E. O. Wilson
#30. Through our failure to acknowledge our oneness with the total of other population s of biological organisms...we reveal the egocentricity which has brought the world to the point of [environmental] crisis... the separation of man from his ecosystems ... has become an article of faith. - Author: John Livingston. From "One Cosmic Moment"
Aquatic Ecosystems quotes by John Livingston. From
#31. If the life-supporting ecosystems of the planet are to survive for future generations, the consumer society will have to dramatically curtail its use of resources - partly by shifting to high-quality, low-input durable goods and partly by seeking fulfillment through leisure, human relationships, and other nonmaterial avenues. We in the consumer society will have to live a technologically sophisticated version of the life-style currently practiced lower on the economic ladder. - Author: Alan Thein Durning
Aquatic Ecosystems quotes by Alan Thein Durning
#32. In New Guinea, as in other hot spots of endangerment, indigenous languages are a user's guide to ecosystems that are increasingly fragile and - in the face of climate change - increasingly irreplaceable. - Author: Anonymous
Aquatic Ecosystems quotes by Anonymous
#33. Leadership is a concept we often resist. It seems immodest, even self-aggrandizing, to think of ourselves as leaders. But if it is true that we are part of a community, then leadership is everyone's vocation, and it can be an evasion to insist that it is not. When we live in the close-knit ecosystem called community, everyone follows and everyone leads. - Author: Parker J. Palmer
Aquatic Ecosystems quotes by Parker J. Palmer
#34. I return to the wilderness to remember what I have forgotten, that the world can be wholesome and beautiful, that the harmony and integrity of ecosystems at peace is a mirror to what we have lost. - Author: Terry Tempest Williams
Aquatic Ecosystems quotes by Terry Tempest Williams
#35. Our presence is not inherently evil and undesirable; it just has to be at the right scale, speed, and design. We can be an expression of biodiversity as worthy as any other species with whom we have co-evolved; we have a place and a vibrant role to play in ecosystems. It is our wild excess of procreation, ill-considered consumption priorities, and unbridled frenzy of activity that drowns the possibilities and existence of individuals from other species. That is where we have gone wrong. - Author: Will Anderson
Aquatic Ecosystems quotes by Will Anderson
#36. Water is such a lifesaver into which we cannot breathe but without taking it into us we cannot live - Author: Munia Khan
Aquatic Ecosystems quotes by Munia Khan
#37. With its hundred billion nerve cells, with their hundred trillion interconnections, the human brain is the most complex phenomenon in the known universe - always, of course, excepting the interaction of some six billion such brains and their owners within the socio-technological culture of our planetary ecosystem! - Author: Steven Rose
Aquatic Ecosystems quotes by Steven Rose
#38. The Bahamas has mangrove nurseries, coral reefs, shallow sea grass beds, and deep oceanic trenches - all perfect ecosystems for sharks. Photographing multiple shark species in exquisite water was the assignment I had dreamed about from the start. - Author: Brian Skerry
Aquatic Ecosystems quotes by Brian Skerry
#39. The industrial way we fish for seafood is harming the marine habitats that all ocean life depends upon. Indiscriminate commercial fishing practices that include miles of driftnets, long lines with thousands of lethal hooks and bottom trawls are ruining ocean ecosystems by killing non-seafood species, including sea turtles and marine mammals. - Author: Ted Danson
Aquatic Ecosystems quotes by Ted Danson
#40. Midway between land and water, freshwater marshes are among the most highly productive ecosystems on earth, rivaling the tropical rainforest. - Author: Robin Wall Kimmerer
Aquatic Ecosystems quotes by Robin Wall Kimmerer
#41. Imagining the world without us is a recipe for despair and paralysis. I actually think it's more helpful to imagine the world before us, to look back at those unstable ecosystems of the Triassic and realize that were in another phase of unstable ecosystems. Knowing that, demystifying our situation as it were, makes it easier to think about solutions. We are not looking into the unknown. The only thing unknown about the situation is how we're going to fix it, and when. - Author: Annalee Newitz
Aquatic Ecosystems quotes by Annalee Newitz
#42. Turn off your televisions. Ignore the Newt-Mitt-Rick- Barack reality show. It is as relevant to your life as the gossip on "Jersey Shore." The real debate, the debate raised by the Occupy movement about inequality, corporate malfeasance, the destruction of the ecosystem, and the security and surveillance state, is the only debate that matters. - Author: Chris Hedges
Aquatic Ecosystems quotes by Chris Hedges
#43. The human organism has the same kind of innate intelligence as the ecosystems of nature, and the wisdom of the nerves and senses must be watched with patience and respect. - Author: Alan W. Watts
Aquatic Ecosystems quotes by Alan W. Watts
#44. Despite their lack of visual impact, headline sex-appeal, and their 'out of sight, out of mind' nature, we should all care about aquatic dead zones because we are all connected to their causes and we all feel their impacts. - Author: Philippe Cousteau, Jr.
Aquatic Ecosystems quotes by Philippe Cousteau, Jr.
#45. It doesn't matter much where your company sits in its industry ecosystem, nor how vertically or horizontally integrated it is - what matters is its relative 'share of customer value' in the final product or solution, and its cost of producing that value. - Author: Gary Hamel
Aquatic Ecosystems quotes by Gary Hamel
#46. Maybe you're right," Kyle said. While Kyle drove, he was deep in thought, trying to grapple with the future. Briana's future. So, the green water had saved her again today. But what about tomorrow? And the next day? And the next? What was she going to do, just keep coming back to the lake and swimming down to the bottom for her green-water fix, like some sort of aquatic vampire? And what about school? She was supposed to leave for State in another week. It was a three-hour drive away. What was she going to do then? - Author: Mike Wells
Aquatic Ecosystems quotes by Mike Wells
#47. Nature is good at connectivity. The impact of diverse human activities is observed and absorbed throughout nature. Everything is linked. Nature has no problem with coherence. Ecosystems react with their own logic. - Author: Jonas Gahr Store
Aquatic Ecosystems quotes by Jonas Gahr Store
#48. The bitcoin world is this new ecosystem where it doesn't cost that much to start a new bitcoin company, it doesn't cost much to start owning bitcoin either, and it is a much more efficient way of moving money around the world. - Author: Timothy C. Draper
Aquatic Ecosystems quotes by Timothy C. Draper
#49. The atmosphere, the earth, the water and the water cycle - those things are good gifts. The ecosystems, the ecosphere, those are good gifts. We have to regard them as gifts because we couldn't make them. We have to regard them as good gifts because we couldn't live without them. - Author: Wendell Berry
Aquatic Ecosystems quotes by Wendell Berry
#50. Restoration ecology is experimental science, a science of love and altruism. In its attempts to reverse the processes of ecosystem degradation it runs exactly counter to the market system, to land speculation, to the whole cultural attitude of regarding the Earth as commodity rather than community. It is a soft-souled science. - Author: Stephanie Mills
