What are trees for?

, : What are trees for?. Arboricultural Journal 26(3): 263-279

This paper first examines the notion of trees as service providers. Some of the possible formal and informal ways in which trees are valued are outlined. The question of what is meant by values is then raised. Instrumental and intrinsic values are recognized, along with anthropocentric and bio-/ecocentric attitudes in regard to trees. The discussion moves on to consider what moral actions different types of valuing might imply, and what rights trees might have by virtue of their values.

Clozapine demonstrates superior efficacy in patients with schizophrenia, but the precise mechanisms contributing to this clinical advantage are not clear. Clozapine and olanzapine increase the GABAergic neuroactive steroid (NS) allopregnanolone, a...
