dc.description.abstractThis section of Lucerna is dedicated to writings by UMKC undergraduate students about the interplay between humans and the environment. Chris Green's historical geography of the Hawaiian Islands provides a four-billion year perspective of environmental change, including the implications of human settlement; Tom Gault offers a review of key philosophical arguments about western society's relationship with nature; and the results of the 2007 Sustain UMKC Competition are presented to our readership. The top ten suggestions for improving the environmental sustainability of development and operations at the University of Missouri - Kansas City are excerpted, including the two ideas voted most practicable, Emily Monroe's description of a campus-based bicycle loan program, and James Ramirez's design concept for landscaped roofing.eng
