Quotes

At last Thursday's Garden Route Initiative* (GRI) meeting held in the George Civic Centre, Dr Brown explained, "Hope Spots are a global network of identified marine areas. They area promoted and driven by the global initiative, Mission Blue. Mission Blue, in turn, was established through the Sylvia Earle Alliance (SEA), an initiative aimed at exploring and caring for the oceans, started by Dr Sylvia Earle, a world-famous diver, oceanographer and national geographic explorer in residence."
...said Noah Fierer, an associate professorprofessor of ecology and evolutionary biology at CU-Boulder and corresponding author of the study. "Not only do they not have a name, but we don't know anything about them. We don't know what sort of conditions they like to live under or what role they may play in soil habitat and soil fertility."
Dr Lobley went on to explain that: "A lot of people think sustainable intensification is impossible! Our project will take these doubts seriously and examine whether it is possible and how to implement it at a landscape scale.”"
