Words of the day: “trophic cascade” - in an ecosystem, the knock-on effects triggered by the removal/addition of (especially) a top predator species in a food web. See, for example, the astonishing consequences of wolf reintroduction to Yellowstone:

Isn't it an astonishing book, Stan. And more than three decades on, Horizon is about to be published; Barry Lopez's first full-length work of non-fiction since Arctic Dreams. I've read it. It's remarkable.

Word of the day: “almanac” - an annual publication detailing events in a given year; e.g. festivals, appearances of constellations, tide-tables, planting dates, lunar/solar phenomena, etc. (depending on the almanac’s specialism). What almanacs do you use/read/remember?

Yup - been using Ecosia a while now. Shame it's not a little better as a search engine, but...it plants trees!
