Wilderness preservation: a cross cultural comparison of Canada and the United States


, : Wilderness preservation: a cross cultural comparison of Canada and the United States. Dissertation Abstracts International, A Humanities and Social Sciences 48(7): p.1811

Conservation is an evolving, trans-national concept that incorporates a philosophy of resource use. Its expression takes different forms and reflects its host culture. The study focuses on wilderness preservation because it was the dominant component of conservation in the USA in the 1960s, and experienced its first surge of interest in Canada at the same time.

Selection imposed by coinfection may vary with the mechanism of within-host competition between parasites. Exploitative competition is predicted to favor more virulent parasites, whereas interference competition may result in lower virulence. Here...
