The Nile River has certainly played a critical role in the history of ancient Egypt. People have been using the nile river for fishing and growing crops for food. This river has given us water for a long time. About fifty five point five percent of all of our water come from the Nile in America today. The environmental impact it has on our land is the food, animals, and water it provides for us.
The fertile field provided by the Nile was extremely crucial to the Egyptians agrarian lifestyles. In fact, they worshiped the Nile river and their idea of the afterlife paradise was called the field of reeds which was also supported by the Nile(Doc D). Not only did the Nile river provide crops for the Egyptians but it also provided a drinking source and fed the other animals they used as laborers and to eat. These essential needs for living would not have come as easily as it did without the support of the Nile. The natural flooding cycle of the Nile river was categorized into three seasons: Akhet, Peret, and Shemu.
Some challenges are: land management issues, restrictions from fossil fuels, food waste, government policy, and demographic changes. Over time, the land changes; the soil can become hard or soft, or it can erode away completely. Farmers struggle every day with the change of land and land management issues. It is very hard and expensive for farmers to keep their land up. Farmers have to pay for technology that helps them keep up the land, and they usually have to pay people to help them because not all farmers can keep up their land by themselves.
Egypt was very important for two main reasons, one of them being the amount of food Egypt had and its strong reliable food source. The farms in Egypt were lacated all around the Nile River. When the river floods, it makes the area around it very fertilized because when the river floods, it carries silt (fine sand, clay, or other material carried by running water and deposited as a sediment, especially in a channel or harbor) and deposits it in the land. So the British used Egypt’s resources to feed their people in Africa. There were a lot of reasons Britain had to colonize Egypt, the most important reason is the Suez Canal.
The three groups are ecological services, social benefits and biological resources. Tropical forests most importantly provide us with some critical life sustaining ecological services. Services like oxygen production, water purification, climate moderation, conversion of solar energy from the sun into carbohydrates and proteins, soil formation and greenhouse gas removal (Biodiversity BC, 2007). Though these services can be provided by green plants in general, through its large presence all around the world, tropical forests play a key part in contributing and maintaining these ecological
The Nile river was also 4175 miles long it is also the longest river in the world(oi). The Nile was also hot all year long it cause the Egyptians to invent irrigation and the shaduf to water crops like wheat(oi). Irrigation systems were set up as checkerboard pieces of land with a small system, and a small basin with a system of dikes. Canals and irrigation work constructed flood waters and redirected them when the floods were high. Irrigation systems we’re not always useful, to solve this problem Egyptians invented the shaduf(oi).
The Industrial Revolution brought down the prices of crops produced by farmers, this meant that farmers were not making enough money to pay off their debts. This increasing problem was slowly digging farmers into a hole with what seemed to be no escape. To add on to their everlasting money problems, middlemen and railroad companies were price gouging the farmers. This meant, the companies were asking farmers to pay prices which had been far higher than the actual value of the products needed for the farmers to raise crops. Companies did this, because they knew that farmers could not buy their goods from other businesses due to the fact that there were not any others in sight.
1. Introduction Water is crucial to our survival! Water is one of the scarcest commodities in the world at the moment; some argue that it is scarcer than oil. Wars have been fought over oil; therefore a war over water is a very big possibility in the years to come on this planet. With the current growth of the world’s population and the increase in demand for water in the agricultural industry, the issue of water scarcity is very likely to get worse and worse (Gupta, 2016).
Waste from animal agricultural industry mainly the manure are very hard to utilised because the amount of manure is too much to handle since the amount of animal itself is quite high. Larger animal produces more manure. Therefore, the amount
Introduction Plants are a major necessity in the balance of nature, people’s lives, and our terrain. We may not realize it, but plants are the ultimate source of food for almost 95% of the world population so says the National Group of Food. It’s a fact that over 7,000 species of plants are being consumed today. Plants are one of the reasons that we get clean water; as they help regulate the water cycle. They also help water move from the soil to the atmosphere through a process called transpiration.
Tidal flooding at the right amount can bring moisture, nutrients, and dissolved oxygen. These help the marsh plants to grow abundant leaves and robust roots. Roots and old leaves form the dark peet which protect the shores and provides homes for abundant wildlife. Some of the animals that frequent salt marshes are ribbed mussels, American black ducks, mummichogs, snowy egrets, great blue herons and sharp tailed
The Apalachicola River plays an integral role in the ecology of Apalachicola Bay. This estuary serves as the interface between the freshwater uplands and the Gulf of Mexico. Apalachicola Bay is an exceptionally important nursery area for fish and shellfish in the Gulf of Mexico and a major foraging area
One component that helped civilization rise is the environment. The Savanna, Sudan, and the Sahara desert all created a beneficial long distance trade and agriculture system, while the rain forest carried disease and flood. Since there were rough conditions leading with these, they had to educate themselves fully on agriculture and
Farmers were forced to by expensive machinery to increased crop production, which were sold at low prices and caused even more debt..In a vicious circle, their farm machinery increased their output of grain, lowered the price, and drove them even deeper into debt. In 1890, many farmers lost land due to mortgages. Farmer then began sharecropping in order to survive. Water scarcity and over-used land made it hard for farmers to pay local taxes. Farmers were hit with barbarous trust like the harvester trust, the barbed-wire trust, and the fertilizer trust.
