The earth will persist - different, surely, but that's the way things go in evolutionary time.<span style="mso-spacerun: yes">&nbsp; </span>The looming terrors of global warming - massive fires, floods, famines, with refugees in their millions fleeing too much water in Bangladesh, too little water in the Sudan - these are all tragedies in historical time, not in evolutionary time.</font></span></p>

What won't persist is our sense of place and time - our own human histories on this earth. It's the places we love, the relationships we cherish with the species that make their homes in those particular places, that help&nbsp;make us human.<span style="mso-spacerun: yes">&nbsp; </span>As Wallace Stegner reminded us, we see the world through our own human eyes, and it's that human vision of the world that is under threat.</font></span></p>

Conservative middle-ground scenarios show Wisconsin becoming the climatological equivalent of Arkansas, while Madison's climate will morph into a twin of Oklahoma City . . . Meanwhile, the North Woods may gradually transition into an oak savannah.<span style="mso-spacerun: yes">&nbsp; </span>That's so difficult to imagine, so close to what we can only think of as science fiction, that all of us have a great deal of trouble even conceiving of the possibility. Yet there it is, looming on the horizon like the eerie bruised sky that so often precedes a tornado. But how does one address the coming of a tornado, much less the coming of a global environmental upheaval? Climate change is such a vast topic, the terminology so difficult, the computer-modeled evidence so complex, the potential loss so enormous that it is nearly impossible to get our arms around it."</font></span></p>

Who wins, and who loses, when the climate changes? Who has the power to define the terms of the debates over global warming? How can humanistic perspectives help us understand people, climate, and places through time? The ASEH conference in Boise, March 12-16, 2008, is a wonderful opportunity for us to engage in this important conversation. Come to Boise!</font></span></p>

Yet developing a site environmental history is not difficult or costly. Hiring an environmental historian to develop a site environmental history can help project biologists and environmental scientists understand what types of disturbances to look for, reveal historical or archeological sites that should be protected, and identify special problem areas where ecosystem structure and function have been dramatically altered. </font>

An environmental historian can help restoration planners decide what the restoration goals should be by determining what was on the site in the past. In Southern California for example, we might consider a restoration goal of 2006 (before current disturbance), 1890 (before widespread farming), 1800 (before extensive grazing), or 10,000 or 25,000 years ago, before people arrived. <span style="mso-font-kerning: 10.0pt">Ideally we would like to find an undisturbed reference site; but there are few, if any, undisturbed sites in Southern California.</span></font></span></font></font></p>

In many cases more information is available to us than we might first suspect. The visit of Jedidiah Smith to San Diego in 1827 is a good example of what we can learn from historical study. He noted the oaks and pines around Old Town. These had to be Torrey Pines (<i style="mso-bidi-font-style: normal">Pinus torreyana</i>), but by the time botanists got here they were all gone except for a small grove near Del Mar. Ethnoecologist Florence Shipek also unearthed evidence of the presence of Torrey Pines on Point Loma through interviews with Kumeyaay elders and field work. </span><span style="FONT-WEIGHT: normal; FONT-SIZE: 12pt; COLOR: black; FONT-FAMILY: Arial">Research is also highlighting the potential impacts of prehistoric management activities that can affect restoration.</span></p>

<p style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"><span style="mso-font-kerning: 10.0pt">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <font color="#000000">An environmental history can also help identify the likely disturbance effects on a site. This can enable limited resources to be focused on the changes in ecosystem structure and function that are most likely to be an issue.</font></span><font color="#000000"> A detailed study can identify the location of old roads, corrals, building sites, and other disturbances that will require special efforts during the restoration project. It may also help identify special problems that may demand special soil or water tests, such as&nbsp;the use of boron as a weed killer in early industrial areas.</font></p>
<div>&nbsp;</div>
<p style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt">&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <font color="#000000">Many consulting firms neglect environmental history because they do not have an environmental historian on staff. Researching environmental history takes training and experience; it is very local, with resources varying widely from place to place. Going back in time through papers, photographs,&nbsp;maps, books,&nbsp;air photos,&nbsp;fieldwork, and the internet&nbsp;starts out as a scientific and historical procedure, but often ends up as an "art."</font></p>

The project, called "Interpreting America's Historic Places: Nature, Culture, and History at the Grand Canyon," is described below: <br /><br />The Grand Canyon is one of the most identifiable and remarkable landscapes on earth and the most internationally recognized symbol of nature in North America. &nbsp;But this grand natural wonder is also, importantly, a cultural landscape. &nbsp;It has been lived in, traveled through, feared, marveled at, exploited for profit, and utilized for education and inspiration by an incredibly diverse array of people over a very long time. &nbsp;The national park, which presently protects this stunning landscape, is an artifact of contemporary times and reflects a distinct set of values about the relationship between nature and culture. &nbsp;But those values and the manner in which they have been expressed are not static. &nbsp;The park itself, its boundaries and management policies, its meaning and significance to Americans, its caretakers, residents, and visitors have all evolved in fascinating ways during the past 100 years. &nbsp;Our aim in this project is to explore the cultural significance of the canyon to those people who have lived here or passed through during the past 400 years. We will explore the ways that this unique place has influenced American science, art, environmental values, popular culture, tourism, and leisure. To accomplish these goals, the project team will develop an interactive website and DVD exploring the human history of the Grand Canyon; a pedestrian audiotour of the Grand Canyon Village historic district and various locations on the North Rim and along the trails in the inner gorge; brochures for park visitors; "traveling trunks" for public school teachers with curriculum and classroom materials; training seminars for park interpreters; and public lectures. <br /><br />For more information, contact: <br />Paul Hirt or Linda Sargent-Wood<br />Department of History <br />Arizona State University <br />Tempe, AZ &nbsp;85287-4302<br />E-mail: </font><a href="mailto:paul.hirt@asu.edu" target="_blank"><font face="Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif">paul.hirt@asu.edu</font></a><font face="Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif"> or </font><a href="mailto:linda.wood@asu.edu" target="_blank"><font face="Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif">linda.wood@asu.edu</font></a></font></span></p>

"They got fed up with finding local streams depleted and their favorite marshes occupied by market hunters with no concept of limits and no restraints," Reiger said.</font></span></p>

<p style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"><span style="FONT-WEIGHT: normal; FONT-SIZE: 12pt; FONT-FAMILY: 'Times New Roman'"><font color="#000000" face="Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif">According to Reiger, hunters and anglers are, by inclination, natural conservationists. "Sportsmen have a vested interest in seeing wildlife thrive. Being out in the field, they are able to see and experience wildlife trends. Hunters and anglers should all be concerned with wildlife first and the killing of game second. We share the same concerns as non-hunters, and that is the protection of wildlife habitats."</font></span></p>

<p style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt"><span style="FONT-WEIGHT: normal; FONT-SIZE: 12pt; FONT-FAMILY: 'Times New Roman'"><font color="#000000" face="Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif">"Hunting and fishing teach a reverence for wildlife," Reiger noted. "It seems a paradox, but there is a 'Code of the Sportsman' that calls on hunters and anglers to pursue game and fish in a sporting manner by giving the prey an opportunity to escape and relying on the individual's skill. It is more difficult but more rewarding."</font></span></p>

"The decline of wildlife habitats is most often caused by contamination and other factors that negatively impact habitats such as marshlands and ponds that are not the work of hunters."</font></span></p>

The meeting offers a marvelous opportunity for environmental historians and those in allied fields to present research results in a gathering regularly attended by nearly 2000 conservation biologists and other conservation professionals from U.S. and worldwide academic institutions, government agencies and NGOs. </font></p>

Next year's venue offers a range of field trip opportunities, both SCB- and self-organized, to beautiful mountains and scenic waterways, from the summit of Lookout Mountain to the banks of the Tennessee River, encompassing thick forests (2.5 hours to Great Smoky Mountains National Park), limestone caverns, and underground waterfalls.</font></p>

Discussion participants included historian Jane Carruthers (University of South Africa), literature professor Dan Wylie (Rhodes University, Grahamstown); lawyer and professor Tracy Dobson (Michigan State University and Humanities Representative, SCB Board of Directors); and biologists David Cumming (University of Cape Town) and Peter Leimgruber (Smithsonian Institution). </font></p>

Richards, Professor of History at Duke University, passed away on August 23, 2007, at age 68.&nbsp; Richards was a pioneer in world environmental history, and a past president of ASEH. Over the past quarter century his work has added an environmental dimension to a wide range of existing historical disciplines, including economic and fiscal history, political history and world systems. From an early career in the history of Mughal India, he became an outstanding team worker and sponsor of younger environmental historians, beginning with his co-editing of two volumes on the modern history of global forest reduction. He moved on from there to rigorously detailed land use and vegetation histories of large areas of Asia, in collaboration with scientists at Woods Hole and other research centers. His environmental history writings culminated in the publication of <em>The Unending Frontier: Environmental History of the Early Modern World</em> in 2003. He was also a major force in building research institutions and lobbying to strengthen their resources. In early 2007 he was awarded the career achievement award of the Association for Asian Studies. John Richards's remarkably wide scope, proverbial scholarly rigor and cherished enthusiasm will be sorely missed.</font></span></p></div></font></td></tr></table></td>
