The common concept of humanity revolves round the personality of an individual and that too is often narrowed down to the physical person which is objective and perceivable as an essential tool for social behaviour. But what lies under this exterior is a whole mass of emotions, responses and reactions which activate the physical personality or else the external form is nothing but a mass of dead and inert matter. These two layers of the human personality are clearly discernible even to an outsider. But there is a subtler undercurrent of ideas, thoughts and impressions which serve as a causative layer to the internal personality and from which the emotions responses and reactions arise. In this book the author has compiled his feelings and experiences at the causative layer depicting how every event of life is a step towards evolution.
In recent decades, managing the nation's public and private forests and rangelands has become increasingly complex, requiring a sound understanding of science and science-based tools to address these complexities. The Forest Service (FS) maintains a research and development program (FS R&D) to help provide scientific info. and tools. This report examined: (1) the scope of R&D carried out by FS R&D and some of its resulting accomplishments; (2) trends in resources used in performing FS R&D work and the effects of those trends on its research efforts and priorities; and (3) recent steps FS R&D has taken to improve its ability to fulfill its mission and challenges it faces in doing so.
