      Policy research using agent-based modeling of forest and farmland change over 50 years ( Guzy et al. 2008).

      Left figure shows 2000 conditions at the junction of the McKenzie and Willamette rivers north of the Eugene-Springfield metropolital area (red).

      Right figure shows the impacts of conservation programs designed to protect fish and aquatic resources by increasing the growth of forest (green) in 2050. The cost is less farmland (brown).

      World areas by size(top) and GDP

      The world mapped for 1990 with regions and nations showing the relative size of their area (top) and gross domestic product (GDP, bottom). North America, Europe, and Japan are small in area but large in GDP. Africa and South America are large in area but small in GDP ( See Smith 1995).

    • Head-size distibution for human societies (Beals et al. 1984 and 1987).

      The world mapped according to the distribution of cranial capacity. Average head size increases with colder climates. Yellow and orange show average cranial capacities less than 1300 cubic centimeters for indigenous populations prior to extensive contact. Colors grade to light blue, where population averages are over 1450 cc.
