urban and other land uses for the South-Central United States. A land use share model is used to investigate the relation between the areas of land in alternative uses and economic and demographic factors influencing land use decisions. Two different ver-sions of the empirical model are estimated, depending on the stumpage price series.

Demographics and socioeconomic status of Hispanics. Hispanics constitute one of the fastest-growing racial/ethnic groups in the United States. According to results from the census, the number of Hispanics in the United States has increased by nearly 60 percent in the last decade, from 23 million in to million in 9 ByHispanics are expected to number Cited by: Land use/land cover changes in the study watershed were detected using digital image analysis techniques, and their socio-economic and biophysical.

The Economic Case for State-Level Land Use Decision-Making Stephan J. Goetz, Ph.D. The Northeastern Regional Center for Rural Development and The Pennsylvania State University [email protected] Although all land use is local, few problems require the more urgent attention of state legisla-tors than that of land use.

Land use change (LUC) driven by human activities and natural factors has resulted in the global loss of native biodiversity and the alteration of ecological processes and services across different ecosystems.

It is thus necessary to analyze the trends and driving factors that influence land use changes. In this study, moderate resolution Landsat images were freely downloaded from the Cited by: 6.

Six factors in the emergence of infectious diseases were elucidated in a Institute of Medicine (IOM) report, Emerging Infections: Microbial Threats to Health in the United States.A decade later, our understanding of the factors in emergence has been substantially influenced by a broader acceptance of the global nature of microbial threats.

Goals / Objectives To examine and understand natural processes, at a variety of scales, that influence the distributions, abundances, and richness of wild animal and plant species. To determine how these species are affected by the spatial distributions of land use and land cover that might be caused by economic, social, and/or environmental factors in.

Alig, Andrew Plantinga. Transit agencies have responded with both operational improvements and land-use changes designed to address this jobs~ousing mismatch. Reverse commute routes bring inner-city and rural residents to job-rich areas in the suburbs and in the tourist industry.

Changes in carbon stores in Swedish forest soils due to increased biomass harvest and increased temperatures analysed with a semi-empirical model. Göran I. Ågren, Riitta Hyvöne. Most clearly, we found that economic investments in rural areas generally correlate with reduced vulnerability where harvests were sensitive to droughts.

For resilient harvests however, these same factors had no, or the opposite, correlation. Vulnerability to drought seems, therefore, related to underlying population economic, and land-use by:   Global change comprises changes in climate and land use driven by natural and anthropogenic processes ng and understanding the associated factors with pest population dynamics under global Cited by: the United States acquired two fifths of the territory then belonging to Mexico, including California and the present American Southwest.

In these territories were rounded out by the Gadsden Purchase Gadsden Purchase, strip of land purchased () by the United States from Mexico. But the low road of economic development ended up falling short: Today, South Carolina is one of the most impoverished states in the nation, becoming the seventh poorest in from 11th inaccording to recent U.S.

Census data. Its percentage of residents living in poverty shot to percent from 15 percent in that period. Livestock export from Somaliland to the Arabian Peninsula countries is an important economic activity and the main source of Somaliland’s foreign exchange earnings. We have employed multiple regression time series analysis of secondary data to understand factors that influence the monthly volumes of small ruminants (sheep and goats) and cattle traded for export in three.

In the United States, the company manages almost million ha of company-owned and leased commercial forestland in 10 states. Much of the timberland has a low book value. The company describes itself as a “timberland owner company,” meaning that the primary interest is profit from and value of by: 17 changes in professional prac tice, theoretical constructs and institutional policies and organization will be given.

A series of external factors, or drivers, provide conditions that allow for a select pathogen to expand and adapt to a new niche.

The drivers for the most part are ecological, political, economic, and social forces operating at local, national, regional, and global levels. Regions where these factors are most densely aggregated, most Author: Gerald T.

In Canada and the United States, attitudes toward gray wolves have changed drastically in recent years (Kellert et al. Lohr et al.Enck and BrownWilliams et al. Now preservationist groups and large sectors of the public regard the wolf positively, viewing its preservation as a high priority for wildlife conservation Cited by: The Northwest district reported the highest overall land values at $9, per acre, and the South Central district reported the lowest overall land values at $4, per acre.

Land values across districts saw an increase in general, with only the Northeast district reporting a decline in land values (a loss of percent). While much attention has been paid to recent Central American arrivals at the U.S.-Mexico border, nearly half of the approximately million Central Americans resident in the United States in arrived before About one-third are naturalized U.S.

citizens, and they tend to participate in the labor force at a higher rate than foreign- and U.S.-born adults. [9] The C balance of a forest ecosystem is the sum of changes in vegetation (living biomass) and soil C pools, which in turn result from NPP over a specified period of time [Chen et al., a, b, c].Since NPP changes with climate, atmospheric composition, soil conditions and disturbances, the C balance of a forest region is a function of these external forcing factors Cited by: factors influencing the adaptability of different crops and cultural methods.

The results indicate that land prices have been affected by, predominately, factors other than the characteristics of the land as traditionally defined.

Economic liberalisation and market-oriented reforms were expected to remove such a gap (Rodrik, ). We now turn to enquire whether economic liberalisation has contributed to narrow the development gap of a core set of Latin American economies and the most developed economy in the world, namely the United States of America.
