Module co-ordinator: Professor Heiko Balzter. Ecosystems provide vital services to people, ranging from provision of natural resources such as food and timber, to the regulation of flood risk and the cultural values of landscapes. Many of these services are under intense pressure by human land use and climate change. Geographical methods are important for the assessment of ecosystem services across the world. These include working with spatial data and satellite images.. ...
Contrary to the predictions of Rapoports rule (29, 47), median range size of dispersion fields decreases with latitude (rs =-0.42) and longitude (rs =-0.67) because of the substantial number of species with large geographic ranges in eastern and central Brazil (Fig. 1). The area of 1° quadrats varies from 12,308 km2 (equator) to 7,036 km2 (56°S) within South America. Owing to the shape of the continent, 70.6% of 1° quadrats occur at tropical latitudes (≤24° latitude; quadrat area ≥11,312 km2). Because of latitudinal variation in quadrat area, geographic range sizes of species restricted to tropical latitudes are underestimated relative to the range sizes of species endemic to higher latitudes. This bias strengthens one of the principal findings of our study; the size of assemblage dispersion fields from eastern and central Brazil is unusually large relative to those observed in the Andes and at higher latitudes (,35° S).. Assemblage Dispersion Fields Illustrate the Probable Geometry of ...
Im not quite sure how to express this and not sure if I consider it an issue or not, but someone brought it to my attention when I was demonstrating how to create a column. If you create a geography column as geography(POINT,4326) vs. geography(POINT) They are different. They dont have the same SRID and in order to convert a geography(POINT) to a geography(POINT,4326) you have to do something goofy like this ALTER TABLE sometable ALTER COLUMN the_geog TYPE (geography(POINT,4326)) USING geography(ST_SetSRID(geometry(the_geog),4326) ); Given that we dont support unknown SRID -- it seems kind of silly to have people do this and takes a long time for a large table. Unfortunately not sure if there is anyway around this aside from enforcing the requirement of SRID (dont allow unknown for now, but allow it later when/if we support multiple SRIDs). Im not sure what the best resolution is for this since its technically not a bug, but an annoyance. ...
The position of the harbors, along with the influence of anthropogenic and natural factors, may be of great significance for the further development of marine traffic. The analysis of regions about cargo traffic sets a good example of how global marrine traffic should be treated [1]. The application of two algorithms such as Infomap and Walktrap could explain the interaction between the city harbors and the cities by means of road and railroad networks [2]. Geoinformatics and the application of GIS could be the new approach to study more efficient exploitation of harbors. India, which is becoming one of the leading world economies, will be strongly oriented to the exploitation of the sea harbors. This study has shown that by means of the analysis of the main export harbors as well as by the analysis of container export in the USA, it is possible to define the advantages and disadvantages of the harbors themselves [3].. In the last decades, the ports in the hugely populated areas have developed ...

The knowledge of a species population structure is essential for the development of adequate conservation actions as well as for the understanding of its evolution. The population structure is unknown in all species of the Genus Psammodromus, including the Western Sand Racer (Psammodromus occidentalis; a recently described species), the Edwards Sand Racer (P. edwardsianus) and the Spanish Sand Racer (P. hispanicus). In this article, the genetic variability and population structure of Psammodromus edwardsianus, P. hispanicus, and P. occidentalis were studied in the Iberian Peninsula covering their natural geographic distribution. Mitochondrial DNA showed genetically different units in all species with higher genetic variability in their southern populations (latitudinal variation). Genetic differentiation was different among species and contrasted to those of species with similar characteristics. Our results therefore highlight the importance of species-specific studies analysing population structure.
THE doctrine that land forms have had a history chiefly distinguishes the new geography from the old. Geography, indeed, takes account of sea as well as land, of the phenomena of the atmosphere, the distribution of organisms, including man, of economic products and political divisions. But the new phase of geography, which is sometimes known as physiography, and later, as geomorphology, is not an isolated and formal element of the science; it rather underlies the whole, modifying or, more truly, controlling climate, organic distribution, and the history of man. The new geography can not, therefore, be charged with infringing upon the rights of the old, for it contributes vitality, unity, and continuity to the whole range of geographic fact and theory; it rejects absolutely the category of the author of one of our textbooks in physical geography, that the air, the water, and the land are the three dead geographic forms.. Geography is sometimes defined as a description of the earth as it is, ...

The human population has increased greatly in size in the last 100,000 years, but the initial stimuli to growth, the times when expansion started, and their variation between different parts of the world are poorly understood. We have investigated male demography in East Asia, applying a Bayesian full-likelihood analysis to data from 988 men representing 27 populations from China, Mongolia, Korea, and Japan typed with 45 binary and 16 STR markers from the Y chromosome. According to our analysis, the northern populations examined all started to expand in number between 34 (18-68) and 22 (12-39) thousand years ago (KYA), before the last glacial maximum at 21-18 KYA, while the southern populations all started to expand between 18 (6-47) and 12 (1-45) KYA, but then grew faster. We suggest that the northern populations expanded earlier because they could exploit the abundant megafauna of the Mammoth Steppe, while the southern populations could increase in number only when a warmer and more stable ...
The mission of the Geography Department is to introduce students to the substance and methods of spatial theory and analysis. We are committed to offering a curriculum that contributes to our students appreciation of an increasingly complex world.. Geography shares with other social sciences an interest in the human condition. What distinguishes geography is its methods of examination. We seek to understand spatial patterns, how they change through time, and the underlying processes responsible for them. Accordingly, geography is sensitive to issues such as scale, area, and distance, whether measured in miles, minutes, or the mental metric of a particular individual. It is our objective to share the value of these concepts with our students while recognizing that the spatial perspective neither precludes nor devalues the importance of diverse contexts and ideas.. Geography has a legacy of studying the distribution of both human and physical phenomena. While undoubtedly easier to treat these as ...

History is moving to the Cloud.. Geographys influence on History has changed over time because of a new player: Technology.. Geography was the overwhelming force driving History early on. Like the board in a game of draughts.. Geography heavily restricted the moves that History could make. (Read more on this in Prisoners of Geography book authored by Tim Marshall). As Technology evolved-and in Technology I include technology, know-how, materials, government quality, military tactics… any idea, any meme that can improve proliferation-the pieces of the game became more complex and versatile. Geography started influencing less, and other aspects mattered more. The world went from a game of draughts to a game of chess: With more complex pieces, the game became more complex.

Downloadable! The most striking fact about the economic geography of the world is the uneven spatial distribution of economic activity, including the coexistence of economic development and underdevelopment. High-income regions are almost entirely concentrated in a few temperate zones, half of the worlds GDP is produced by 15 percent of the worlds population, and 54 percent of the worlds GDP is produced by countries occupying just 10 percent of the worlds land area. The poorest half of the worlds population produces only 14 percent of the worlds GDP, and 17 of the poorest 20 nations are in tropical Africa. The unevenness is also manifest within countries and within metropolitan concentrations of activity. Why are these spatial differences in land rents and wages not bid away by firms and individuals in search of low-cost or high-income locations? Why does economic activity cluster in centers of activity? And what are the consequences of remoteness from existing centers? The authors argue that
Ecological models relating to wildlife often have a spatial component to incorporate the influence of relevant landscape or geographical features. We use spatial data (from GPS or radio tracking) to explore animal movements in relation to their environment (e.g. home range/ habitat use or trajectory analysis).. Habitat and landscape features can also be used to make inference about the likely presence of animals in given areas (habitat suitability) which can be used in process based models.. Spatial point processes allow us to investigate the clustering of events in time and space to allow us to investigate patterns and determine associated risk factors (e.g. disease). Analysis is carried out in a range of spatial software including GRASS, ARCGIS, Ranges and spatial packages in R.. ...
We appreciate Dr Grants comments (1) on our descriptive analysis of multiple sclerosis (MS) prevalence in 3 US communities (2). Respectfully, we disagree that we misinterpreted the findings. As researchers, we are cautious about speculating beyond the presented data or offering policy recommendations that are not sufficiently supported by the findings.. Dr Grant focused his comments on 2 aspects of our manuscript. First, he reiterates the similarities between our findings and those by others (3) but criticizes the absence of a detailed comparison between the 2 data sets. The figure presented by Dr Grant supports our findings of a geographic gradient but does little to extend the argument that UV exposure is protective for MS. Dr Grants argument is based on replacing 1 exposure variable that is assigned at the population level, latitude, with another correlated variable, UV exposure.. Second, Dr Grant notes that we failed to suggest a mechanism for the link. As indicated in our discussion (2), ...

They were created for different reasons such as to be a postal guide or to document geography. Gazetteers may describe towns and villages, parishes, counties, provinces, rivers and mountains, sizes of population, and other geographical features. They usually include only the names of places that existed at the time the gazetteer was published. The place-names are generally listed in alphabetical order, similar to a dictionary ...

N.C. Stenseth, O.N. Bjørnstad and T. Saitoh: Seasonal forcing on the dynamics of Clethrionomys rufocanus - modeling geographic gradients in population dynamics
Downloadable (with restrictions)! The purpose of this paper is to investigate the pattern of knowledge flows as indicated by the patent citations in three areas: USA, Japan and Europe. In each economic area, we use information from United States Patent and Trademarks Office data to assess empirically the impact of the technological and geographical proximities for 530 international firms. In particular, the contribution to the existing literature is twofold: first, we use an international sample in such a way that we may compare the empirical results among different economic markets; second, we extend the analysis of the determinants of knowledge spillovers, taking into account the time dimension of the effects of the proximities. In order to compute the technological proximity, we follow the methodology developed by A.B. Jaffe (1986. Technological opportunity and spillovers of R&D: Evidence from firms patents, profits and market value. American Economic Review 76, no. 5: 984--1001), where a

Earths crust - climate - colonization - water supply - transport - economic relations - these are just a few key words that describe the diverse aspects of geography. This discipline deals with the forms and processes of the Earths surface in its spacial differentiation and human activities in its social and physical environment. It is typical for geographers to include natural science, social science, and economic perspectives and systematically link them.. Physical geography concentrates primarily on natural science research approaches and methods, such as in climatology, geomorphology, and geoecology.. Anthropogeography works from an economic-social science perspective, such as in commercial geography, transport geography, urban geography, and population geography..

Organizers: Olav Slaymaker, University of British Columbia, Marc Tadaki, University of British Columbia, and Yvonne Martin, University of Calgary.. Physical geography is a sub-set of the discipline of Geography. Up until the 1950s, physical geography functioned as the physical basis of Geography. Understanding the ways in which bio-geophysical forms and processes operate at the Earths surface was a necessary prelude to studying the interactions of socio-political processes with bio-geophysical systems. The rationale for physical geography was entirely pragmatic: it existed as a servant of the parent discipline and any philosophical underpinnings were left to Geography. Over the past century, the scholarly priorities across Geographys sub-disciplines have changed substantially, valuing or prizing different forms of knowledge along the way. The quantitative revolution of the 1960s, for example, saw a convergence around positivist methods for both physical and (some forms of) human geography. ...

The links between human and physical geography were once more apparent than they are today. As human experience of the world is increasingly mediated by technology, the relationships between humans and the environment have often become obscured. Thereby, integrated geography represents a critically important set of analytical tools for assessing the impact of human presence on the environment. This is done by measuring the result of human activity on natural landforms and cycles.[4] Methods for which this information is gained include remote sensing, and geographic information systems.[5] Integrated geography helps us to ponder the environment in terms of its relationship to people. With integrated geography we can analyze different social science and humanities perspectives and their use in understanding people environment processes.[6] Hence, it is considered the third branch of geography,[7] the other branches being physical and human geography.[8] ...

All Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) programs in Geography (including Urban Studies) can be found in Faculty of Arts , Undergraduate , Browse Academic Units & Programs , Geography (GEOG).. Geography is a broad, holistic discipline; both a natural and a social science because it examines people and their environment and serves as a bridge between physical and cultural processes.. Human Geography is concerned especially with the political, economic, social, and cultural processes and resource practices that create spatial patterns and define particular places.. Physical Geography integrates disciplines such as climatology, geomorphology, geology, biology, hydrology, ecology, soil science, and even marine science. Whether considering greenhouse gas emissions, the spread of disease, or threats to biodiversity, geographers are interested in where things happen, why, and with what consequences. Our graduates go on to careers in environmental ...
While variation in age structure over time and space has long been considered important for population dynamics and conservation, reliable estimates of such spatio-temporal variation in age structure have been elusive for wild vertebrate populations. This limitation has arisen because of problems of imperfect detection, the potential for temporary emigration impacting assessments of age structure, and limited information on age. However, identifying patterns in age structure is important for making reliable predictions of both short- and long-term dynamics of populations of conservation concern. Using a multistate superpopulation estimator, we estimated region-specific abundance and age structure (the proportion of individuals within each age class) of a highly endangered population of snail kites for two separate regions in Florida over 17 years (1997-2013). We find that in the southern region of the snail kite-a region known to be critical for the long-term persistence of the species-the ...
Population geography is a division of human geography. It is the study of the ways in which spatial variations in the distribution, composition, migration, and growth of populations are related to the nature of places. Population geography involves demography in a geographical perspective.[a] It focuses on the characteristics of population distributions that change in a spatial context. This often involves factors such as where populations are found and how the size and composition of these populations is regulated by the demographic processes of fertility, mortality, and migration.[1] Contributions to population geography are cross-disciplinary because geographical epistemologies related to environment, place and space have been developed at various times.[2] Related disciplines include geography, demography, sociology, and economics. Since its inception, population geography has taken at least three distinct but related forms, the most recent of which appears increasingly integrated with human ...
This course provides students with an introduction to Geography at LSE. In Michaelmas Term we will examine human geographys key concepts, including space, place, landscape, nature, globalization, mobility, society and city. In the Lent Term the course will move on to introductory sections on environmental geography and economic geography. The environmental section will trace how geography as a discipline has approached nature-society relationships, covering topics such as, the anthropocene, socio-materiality, wilderness, urban nature, and local and global environmental movements. The economic geography section will introduce students to the changing location of economic activity, inequalities within and between countries, regions and cities, and the rationale, objectives and tools of local and regional development policies in a globalizing world.. ...
Objectives. The primary aim of this study was to describe the geography of serious mental illness (SMI) - type 2 diabetes comorbidity(T2D) in the Illawarra-Shoalhaven region of NSW, Australia and to identify the significant clusters and their locations. The secondary objective was to determine the geographic concordance if any, between the comorbidity and the single diagnosis of SMI and T2D. Methods. Spatial analytical techniques were applied to clinical data to explore the above aims. The geographic variation in comorbidity was determined by Morans I at the global level and the local clusters of significance were determined by Local Indicators of Spatial Association (LISA) and Spatial scan statistic. Choropleth hotspot maps were created to visually assess the geographic convergence of SMI, diabetes and their comorbidity. Additionally, we used bivariate LISA to identify coincident areas with higher rates of both SMI and T2D. Results. The study identified significant geographic variations in the ...
Abstract: The Low Elevation Coastal Zone (LECZ) Urban-Rural Population Estimates consists of country-level estimates of urban, rural and total population and land area country-wide and in the LECZ, if applicable. Additionally, the data set provides the number of urban extents, their population and land area that intersect the LECZ, by city-size population classifications of less than 100,000, 100,000 to ... 500,000, 500,000 to 1,000,000, 1,000,000 to 5,000,000, and more than 5,000,000. All estimates are based on GRUMP Alpha data products. The LECZ was generated using SRTM Digital Elevation Model data and includes all land area that is contiguous with the coast and 10 meters or less in elevation. All grids used for population, land area, urban mask, and LECZ were of 30 arc-second (~1 km ) resolution. This data set is produced by the Columbia University Center for International Earth Science Information Network (CIESIN) in collaboration with the International Institute for Environment and ...

The U.S. Board on Geographic Names (BGN) is a Federal body created in 1890 and established in its present form by Public Law in 1947 to maintain uniform geographic name usage throughout the Federal Government. The BGN comprises representatives of Federal agencies concerned with geographic information, population, ecology, and management of public lands. Sharing its responsibilities with the Secretary of the Interior, the BGN promulgates official geographic feature names with locative attributes as well as principles, policies, and procedures governing the use of domestic names, foreign names, Antarctic names, and undersea feature names.. The original program of names standardization addressed the complex issues of domestic geographic feature names during the surge of exploration, mining, and settlement of western territories after the American Civil War. Inconsistencies and contradictions among many names, spellings, and applications became a serious problem to surveyors, map makers, and ...

In an honorary presidential address he called The Education of a Geographer, Carl Sauer (1956, p. 294) summed up the challenges of teaching a course in regional geography by asserting: A good regional course is largely an individual creation out of long application, nursed on much meditation. To me it is a study in historical geography. Since I began teaching at Queens University in Canada, regional courses on Latin America have figured in the curriculum. Despite the disappearance of such offerings from geography programs elsewhere, two courses in particular, one on Middle America and another on South America, have proven perennially popular. A Sauerian penchant for historical geography forms the foundation of what I teach, and deploying film as means of instruction is a key complement to how I teach.. Short of students being in the field alongside you, film is arguably the best surrogate for relaying to them, within the confines of a university classroom, the texture of reality. What we ...
The uptake of breast conserving surgery (BCS) for early stage breast cancer varies by where women live. We investigate whether these geographical patterns have changed over time using population-based data linkage between cancer registry records and hospital inpatient episodes. The study cohort consisted of 11,631 women aged 20 years and over diagnosed with a single primary invasive localised breast cancer between 1997 and 2011 in Queensland, Australia who underwent either BCS (n = 9223, 79%) or mastectomy (n = 2408, 21%). After adjustment for socio-demographic and clinical factors, compared to women living in very high accessibility areas, women in high (Odds Ratio (OR) 0.58 (95% confidence intervals (CI) 0.49, 0.69)), low (OR 0.47 (0.41, 0.54)) and very low (OR 0.44 (0.34, 0.56)) accessibility areas had lower odds of having BCS, while the odds for women from middle (OR 0.81 (0.69, 0.94)) and most disadvantaged (OR 0.87 (0.71, 0.98)) areas was significantly lower than women living in affluent areas.

The JRC has developed an experimental global storm surge model, which is run after each advisory issued by the regional tropical cyclone centres. The calculations are published about 20 minutes after a new advisory is detected by GDACS. The calculations identify the populated places affected by storm surge up to three days in advance, using the forecasted track. When forecasts change, the associated storm surge changes too and alert levels may go up or down.. ...

Empirical and theoretical contributions provide strong evidence that firm-level performance outcomes in terms of innovativeness can either be determined by the firms position in the social space (network effects) or by the firms position in the geographical space (co-location effects). Even though we can observe quite recently first attempts in bringing together these traditionally distinct research streams (Whittington et al. 2009), research on interdependent network and geographical co-location effects is still rare. Consequently, we seek to answer the following research question: considering that the effects of social and geographic proximity on firms innovativeness can be interdependent, what are the distinct and combined effects of firms network and geographic position on firm-level innovation output? We analyze the innovative performance of German laser source manufacturers between 1995 and 2007. We use an official database on publicly funded R&D collaboration projects in order to ...
The district was initially called kōri and has ancient roots in Japan. Although the Nihon Shoki says they were established during the Taika Reforms, kōri was originally written 評.[4] It was not until the Taihō Code that kōri came to be written as 郡 (imitating the Chinese division). Under the Taihō Code, the administrative unit of province (国, kuni) was above district, and the village (里 or 郷 sato) was below. As the power of the central government decayed (and in some periods revived) over the centuries, the provinces and districts, although never formally abolished and still connected to administrative positions handed out by the Imperial court (or whoever controlled it), largely lost their relevance as administrative units and were superseded by a hierarchy of feudal holdings. In the Edo period, the primary subdivisions were the shogunate cities, governed by urban administrators (machi-bugyō), the shogunate domain (bakuryō, usually meant to include the smaller holdings of ...
