  • Can anyone tell my how many of these species became extinct because that was our goal? I guess it is close to zero. So one species is dominant and others either adapt, survive in another way or ...
  • One example: https://www.kuleuven.be/english/news/2014/rapid-evolution-aids-spread-of-exotic-plant-species-1 Oh and do note this "The Pyrenean rocket is a harmless plant, but some exotics can ...
  • Irrelevant. I will reiterate what Uni ovf BErkely explicitly science cannot provide: Anything to say here? University of BErkeley says science cannot provide: 1) Moral judgments 2) Aesthetic Judgements
  • Watched it yesterday with my GF.
  • You claimed if I remember correctly that society wants this and that. Society simply does not seem to support the stance on introduced species nor their "control". The only reason for leveling some ...
  • Islands, islands islands. Exceptions to the rule Chris and this is well known. Is that all you got. Besides: extinctions are one thing. Extinctions because of nonnative introductions are another. ...
  • This is the dichotomy at least to me. Where people thing ecology is all about nature and natural development, where human influence is considered unwanted or unnatural we see that ecology is not ...
  • This is different for two reasons: 1) It does not favour any government that they have to take action towards climate change, which is why they do very little against it. It are gouvernments that ...
  • Now i have gone through alot of peerreviewed papers on this continent, show me one animal on the aussie continent that has become exticnt through an introduction. It is a prime example of ...
  • Anyways rewilding is simply the best option as it costs only one thing: acceptance of what happens. Eradicating some species based on unwanted genetics to the like of some is not in order. Rewild ...
  • Personal preference. "WE" in reality is a very small group which gained alot of influence. A poll amongst visitors of Dutch national parks was conducted a vast majority clearly liked the wood ...
  • My point was not the content here, it was the ditinction between science and politics. However, your response or the one you quote proves his point. You simply add someones opinion and your own to ...
  • Starting at about 5.30... Now it is a very interesting this is about climate change. But he is very clear and eloquent where Opinions belong and where Facts belong and where science stands and what ...
  • I like this guy a lot. And he has some other values and IS a restoration Ecologist: Invaders, lies and their effects... I think he is also funny. So which values are we talking about. Now look at ...
  • I should be more carefull with my wording. I am talking about invasion/restoration ecology. I agree that the whole field is not without its merrits. Ehm..I could be called a treehugger myself. In ...
  • That is completely wrong. There can be no influence form outside on the outcome of a study other than data that supports or destroys your thesis, findings or whatever. Scientific findings cannot ...
  • Which is not the problem, I have repeatedly said it. It is just that a scientific field should not allow their opinions to influence their scientific work. Right. Yet they (if we generalise!) ...
  • Adam and Steve seem to disagree and I think they are the ones who know best what they feel.
  • I guess with "biological" you simply mean "my" but that does not sound so convincing, does it? "Biological" makes it seem much more serious. Well since there is cannibalism among many animals even ...
  • During my daily pause I frequently walked for 30 minutes with resotoration ecologists here in SW Netherlands. At my work I had one right at my desk another one educatedin that field, bbut now ...
