Chapter I

The Problem and Its Background

The Problem

The current era is called the Space Age -- a time of phenomenal scientific progress. Accordingly, improvements in science programs at all levels of education are being urged and promoted on all sides. Federal grants are offered to motivate science teachers to improve their training; federal funds are available to aid school systems in the purchase of scientific equipment; and capable high-school and college students are urged to choose careers in the sciences.

Germination And Early Survival Of Picea Rubens Sargent In Experimental Laboratory And Field Plantings, Nancy C. Wilson Mar 1965

Germination And Early Survival Of Picea Rubens Sargent In Experimental Laboratory And Field Plantings, Nancy C. Wilson

Masters Theses

The Problem: In the Smoky Mountains Pica rubens Sarg. (red spruce) occurs at elevations which suggest that it should occur further south than it does. Whittaker (1956) describes the potential altitudinal range of the spruce-fir forest as being in the southwestern Smoky mountains. High elevation deciduous forest with reduced stature, and "perhaps well beyond their favorable conditions of temperature and growing season," have replaced the sub-alpine forest type. If, as has been suggested by Whittaker (1956) and Mark (1958), historical factors based on changes of climate in geological time have eliminated the red spruce southward, then a modern man-made range ...
