Ecogenesis

Ecogenesis

 

the development in the course of evolution of ecological relations between organisms and their environment. The term “ecogenesis” was introduced in 1904 by the German scientist K. Detto, who used it to denote the process of adaptation in general. Ecogenesis is sometimes defined as the process whereby new forms appear under the influence of the environment. Ecogenesis, or ecogenetic succession, is also used for floral succession, the main cause of which is a change in ecological conditions engendered by the plants themselves (endogenous succession) or by external factors (hologenetic succession).

This film, using Genesis Plastics Welding's proprietary ecoGenesis technology, can be radio frequency (RF)--welded, using no additives or adhesives, to manufacture a variety of medical supplies and equipment, including fluid delivery, storage, and drainage bags, O'Sullivan says.
For an argument that reason alone cannot mandate morality--that it cannot show why we should widen the circle of our natural sympathy for kith and kin to bring 'others' within the sweep of these good or sympathetic intentions--see Freya Mathews, 'The Ecogenesis of Ethics and Religion', Journal for the Study of Religion Nature and Culture 5, 3, 2011.
The ecoGenesis technology enables non-phthalate, low dielectric loss material to be RF welded.
We have validated ecoGenesis welding for use with Versaflex CLE and Versaflex MT220 grades, providing the industry better choices for the next generation of fluid delivery products.
Called ecoGenesis, it's a proprietary development from Genesis Plastics Welding, Indianapolis, an RF welding/sealing specialist and contract manufacturer.

1) Vendrian a ser planos de temporalidad distintos en los procesos de configuracion humana, a saber: (a) filogenesis: historia de la especie; (b) ontogenesis: historia del organismo-individuo; (c) sociogenesis: historia socio-cultural de los grupos en los que crecen y viven (que podrian ser resumidos todos en la ecogenesis, la genesis de los nichos ecologicos habitados por esos grupos de individuos de forma concreta).
En otras palabras, las sociedades, los grupos sociales, las personas le incorporan al espacio la semiosfera, es decir, el conjunto de signos culturales que caracterizan a una sociedad, y el resultado de ese proceso inacabado --llamado por Raffestin (1986) ecogenesis territorial-- es el territorio.
The seeds for the project were donated by Ralph Paul Evering, owner of EcoGenesis, an eight-year-old Toronto seed company.
EcoGenesis seeds tend to grow plants more resistant to disease, drought and insect feeding.
This study, and studies within individual islands (Thorpe and Brown 1989), indicate that the blue markings on the trunk and neck may be strongly influenced by ecogenesis.
Here, (1) is countered by using DNA data that are unlikely to be strongly influenced by ecogenesis, and (2) is countered by using a model (western Canary Island lizard, Gallotia galloti), which, for geological reasons, has been subject to dispersal but not vicariance.
