Native American cultivation was mostly dominated by tomatoes, corn and potatoes while Europe mostly had grains and onions. The Native Americans also lacked in domesticated animals to put to use, this was because most of the animals that lived in The Americas lacked certain features that make them domesticateable. The only animal in The Americas that could be domesticated were Lamas. Lamas were mostly used for their wool but could also be used to carry light items across distances, or were slaughtered for their meat. Europe on the other hand had a lot of animals that they could domesticate.
When a single shot was fired likely from a soldier they began shooting with Gatling guns nonstop. They killed all of the Native Americans present without remorse and shouted “this is for Custer”. This tragic event was horrific and by the 1900’s ninety six percent of the Native American populations were gone. These were some of the most tragic events that occurred to Native Americans in the history of the United States. Additionally, the Dakota conflict that led to the hangings of 38 Native Americans is the biggest mass execution to occur in United States.
Part two of the Northeast covers the death and destruction those europeans caused with diseases, where 90% of the population died in some instances. Pure greed over their land, with the terrible massacres that happened to the tribes was also covered and how they wore down the Indian’s to not fight. The Southeast covers generally the same tragic situations that took place with the tribes in that region. It also covers the distinction of the farming techniques they acquired along with trading techniques and their cultural relationships among other natives and Europeans. The Southwest covers archeological questions and the deep history with many tribes including the Apacheans who migrated southwards from Canada and Alaska.
The Rwandan Genocide killed from 500,000 to 1,000,000 people, while the Armenian Genocide killed 800,000 to 180,000. Genocides, the deliberate killing of a large group of people, especially those of a particular group or nation, has affected various countries. Genocide not only brings a war but also problems like decreasing economic affairs and social problems. When genocide starts, society overlooks economic affairs like their agriculture since they focus on the war. In the case of Rwanda, once the genocide had begun many farmers fled or were killed.
A major decline in the amount of the potatoes of Ireland forever changed the histories of Ireland, England, and the United States. More the 500 thousand people in Ireland had died during this time. This particular genocide greatly affected the rest of the world. Potatoes from Ireland were a major food source throughout the world. All countries had to adjust and were economically affected by this change.
Their way of life was also harmed because with the expansion came the building of a railroad. The U.S. citizens were killing buffalo to feed railroad workers and to give leather to factories. Around 1 million buffalo were killed each year and soon they were dying off. In document five, it shows what each part of the buffalo was used for. It shows that the Native Americans used every part of the animals just to survive.
What other events combined with the economic crash to make the Depression so harsh? Urban centers had turned into uninhabited areas. Grim shantytowns, bitterly dubbed "Hoovervilles," were made from crates and cartons. Meanwhile, a drought withered crops and made the Great Plains into badlands. "Dust Bowl" conditions obliterated three hundred million tons of topsoil, equal to 3,000 hundred-acre farms.
The Permian-Triassic extinction The largest of the Big Five was the end-Permian or Permian-Triassic extinction event roughly 250 million years ago, which eliminated as much as 95 percent of the planet 's species. Before this extinction, marine animals were mostly filter feeders stuck in place on the seafloor, such as crinoids or "sea lilies." Afterward, the seas became far more complex with mobile creatures such as snails, urchins and crabs. The most likely final trigger for the end-Permian was again massive volcanism, this time at the Siberian Traps, which spewed as much as 2.7 million square miles (7 million square kilometres) of lava out, an area nearly as large as Australia. Recent evidence suggests, however, that the end-Permian may have
One extinction that occurred was at end Permian, at the end of the Paleozoic era which wiped out about 90% of all species which may be caused by volcanism, meteor, global warming, sea-level changes, glaciation, or ocean chemistry changes. Another extinction that occurred was at end Cretaceous, at the end of the Mesozoic era which made around 60-80% of all species extinct which may have been caused by a meteor impact, volcanic activity, or sea-level change. Another extinction that occurred was at late Pleistocene at the end of the Cenozoic era which made nearly all mammals and birds over 45 pounds extinct, which may be caused by over-hunting by humans.
People believe that the green from the infection is mold but mold is not a human pathogen. The color comes from iron compounds. They usually do not cause infections in healthy people and if it does it is not as severe. What does the Bacterial like? Pseudomonas bacteria thrive in moist places, feeds off dead tissue and other bacteria and moisture allows it to grow.
Georgios Kepertis Earth 102-6: Death of the Dinosaurs Paper 4: Permian-Triassic Extinction 12-7-2015 The Permian-Triassic Extinction Event: When Life on Earth Almost Ended An event that marked a great transition, an event so overwhelming that most creatures on Earth could not handle it; its power so immense that even plants and insects were almost eradicated from the face our planet. If it were to happen today, humans would most certainly be defenseless against the brute forces of nature, and even though it happened roughly 252 million years ago, it is still the most catastrophic period in time known to man. Colloquially known as the “Great Dying”, its scientific name is not quite as terrifying, “The Permian-Triassic Extinction Event”. As
The word mega in megafauna (fig 1: megafauna) means huge, and fauna means animals so when you put it together it means huge animals. Most megafauna were over 40kg and 30% bigger than their relatives who are alive today. They’ve existed for over 11 million years, but then disappeared in a mass extinction 46,000 years ago (Mandy McLauchlan, 2016). There are several ideas of how they became extinct which includes the ill, kill and chill factors. Ill being a disease which infected the megafauna and ultimately killed them off.
