Vor ten thousand Jahren, zu Beginn des Neolithikums begann der Mensch seBhaft zu werden. Er lei tete damit einen neuen ProzeB in das erdge schichtliche Geschehen ein, namlich Wachs tum und growth der eigenen Spezies iiber die naturgegebene Umweltkapazitat hinaus. Er kauft wird diese Entwicklung mit der starken Inanspruchnahme der endlichen Ressourcen Materialien und Raum sowie der Belastung von Natur und Umwelt auf eine unseren Planeten nachhaltig bedrohende paintings und Weise. Bis zur "agrarischen Revolution" in der Jungsteinzeit warfare der Mensch als Jager und Sammler Teil natiirlicher Okosysteme und da mit vergleichbar den tierischen Organismen den naturgegebenen Ge setzmafiigkeiten unterworfen. Dann rodete er den Wald, bearbeitete den Boden, kultivierte ausgewahlte Pflanzen, entwickelte die Haustier haltung und schuf mit festem Wohnsitz in seinen dorflichen Sied lungsgemeinschaften die Voraussetzung fUr eine systematische Vor ratshaltung. Die Tragfahigkeit eines Gebietes battle jetzt nicht mehr aus schlieBlich durch die in Raum und Zeit begrenzten Naturressourcen bestimmt. Der Mensch hatte einen Weg gefunden, sie durch zielge richtete MaBnahmen systematisch zu erweitern. Mit dieser Befreiung aus der strengen Abhangigkeit von der Natur scherte der Mensch aus den regelnden Zwangen der Evolution aus und begann, sich iiber die populationserhaltende Reproduktion hinaus nachhaltig zu vermehren. Seit 1850 hat sich die Weltbevolkerung verfiinffacht auf 6 Mrd. ge gen Ende des 20. Jahrhunderts. Gleichzeitig wuchs der Verbrauch an Primarenergie, gegenwartig zu seventy five% durch fossile Energietrager ge deckt, urn mehr als das Dreifiigfache. Spatestens jetzt wurde das be sonders verschwenderische Verhalten des Menschen o ffenbar.

'The aiding Roots - constitution and Function,' 20-24 July 1998, Bordeaux, France. The assembly was once held less than the auspices ofIUFRO WPS 2. 01. thirteen 'Root body structure and Symbiosis,' and its objective used to be to collect clinical researchers, foresters and arboriculturalists, to debate present difficulties in structural root examine and disseminate wisdom to an viewers from a large disciplinary historical past. For the 1st time in a global convention, emphasis was once put on proposing contemporary reseach within the box of tree anchorage mechanics and root biomechanics. the way tree balance will be laid low with root approach symmetry and structure used to be addressed, in addition to how circulation in the course of wind sway can impression the advance and form of woody roots. The function of other nursery and planting options used to be mentioned, when it comes to results on root approach shape and improvement. Root reaction to varied environmental stresses, together with water, temperature, nutrient and mechanical pressure was once addressed intimately. The constitution and serve as of woody roots was once additionally thought of at various degrees, from coarse to positive roots, with a number of papers discussing the interplay among roots and the rhizosphere. one of many convention highlights used to be the presentation of recent equipment in root study, via a sequence of workshops held at LRBB-INRA, Pierroton, at the northern border of the Gascony forest.
