Whittaker. Tree-of-heaven was imported into the Eastern U.S. as an ornamental in and was a common nursery species by the mids (DaviesHu ).

Favorable early tests paved the way for widespread plantings on surface mined lands in Appalachia (Plass ). Tree-of-heaven is a shallow-rooted deciduous tree that can grow to 80 feet tall.

In general, there are three classes of objects whose diversity is measured. These are genotypes, species, and communities (Gliwicz ). Each class can be related to either typological or spatial sequence and referenced to different areas ().Many different factors are involved in determining both the biodiversity of species within communities and the typological diversity of ecosystems.

The Athabasca oil sands, also known as the Athabasca tar sands, are large deposits of bitumen or extremely heavy crude oil, located in northeastern Alberta, Canada – roughly centred on the boomtown of Fort oil sands, hosted primarily in the McMurray Formation, consist of a mixture of crude bitumen (a semi-solid rock-like form of crude oil), silica sand, clay Coordinates: 57°01′N °39′W /.

A mail survey was conducted in in the Western Edwards Aquifer area of Texas to assess landowner perceptions regarding the supply of ecological services from rangelands and their willingness to participate in various land management programs aimed at enhancing such services, which are receiving increasing public consideration.

This chapter presents a discussion of impacts of uranium mining and processing operations on air quality, soil, surface water and groundwater, and biota. Much is already known about the environmental impacts of mining, both on-site and off-site, and that body of information provides a basis for this chapter.

However, the primary emphasis of the chapter is on the unique impacts. Rehabilitation is the return of the land to a form and productivity in conformity with a prior land- use plan, including a stable ecological state that does not contribute substantially to environmental deterioration and is consistent with surrounding aesthetic by: 3.
