nature taking

publisher location isbn oclc doi bibcode page chapter In the Spring of 1855, as the Crimean war developed, Darwin was pondering the war of nature, taking the then current analogy with an industrial economy further than others, and wondering how species spread. He was dismissive of the ideas that others had put forward of sunken continents like Atlantis, and began experimenting in his house with soaking seeds in brine then seeing if they could germinate. He reported his results in ''Gardeners' Chronicle'' and roped in his curate friends including Henslow. The consul in Norway sent seed pods which had washed ashore. Hooker was able to identify them as coming from the Caribbean and get them to germinate at Kew. Investigation of variation brought him back to animal husbandry. He now began dissecting domestic animals and breeding pigeons, joining a pigeon fancier's club: very unorthodox behaviour for naturalists at that time.

Much of this band was shared with broadcasters, and in most countries the bottom 100 kHz or 200 kHz are available to amateurs.

Norway

'''Norway''' ( The Antarctic Peter I Island and the sub-Antarctic Bouvet Island are dependent territories (Dependencies of Norway) and thus not considered part of the Kingdom. Norway also lays claim to a section of Antarctica known as Queen Maud Land. Until 1814, the Kingdom included the Faroe Islands (since 1035), Greenland (1261), and Iceland (1262).

Norway has a total area of The country shares a long eastern border with Sweden (1,619 km (List of countries and territories by land borders) or 1,006 mi long). Norway is bordered by Finland and Russia to the north-east, and the Skagerrak Strait (Skagerrak) to the south, with Denmark on the other side. Norway has an extensive coastline, facing the North Atlantic Ocean and the Barents Sea.

King Harald V (Harald V of Norway) of the House of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksburg is the current monarch of Norway (Monarchy of Norway). Erna Solberg became Prime Minister in 2013, replacing Jens Stoltenberg. A constitutional monarchy since 1814, state power is divided (Separation of power) between the Parliament (Storting), the King and his Council (Cabinet of Norway), and the Supreme Court (Supreme Court of Norway). Between 1661 and 1814, Norway was an absolute monarchy, and before 1661, the King shared power with the Norwegian nobility (Aristocracy of Norway). Traditionally established in 872 (Battle of Hafrsfjord) and originating in one of the petty kingdoms (Petty kingdoms of Norway), Norway is one of the oldest still existing kingdoms in Europe and world-wide. The Kingdom has existed continuously for over 1,100 years, and the list of Norwegian monarchs includes over sixty kings and earls.

Norway has both administrative and political subdivisions on two levels, known as counties (fylke (Counties of Norway)) and municipalities (kommune (List of municipalities of Norway)). The Sámi people have a certain amount of self-determination and influence over traditional territories through the Sámi Parliament (Sami Parliament of Norway) and the Finnmark Act. Norway maintains close ties (Norway – European Union relations) with the European Union and its member countries (despite rejecting full EU membership in two referenda (Norwegian European Union membership referendum, 1994)), as well as with the United States. Norway is a founding member of the United Nations, NATO, the Council of Europe, the Antarctic Treaty and the Nordic Council; a member of the European Economic Area, the WTO (World Trade Organization) and the OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development); and is also a part of the Schengen Area.

The country maintains a combination of market economy and a Nordic welfare model (Nordic model) with universal health care and a comprehensive social security system. Norway has extensive reserves of petroleum, natural gas, minerals, lumber, seafood, fresh water, and hydropower. The petroleum industry accounts for around a quarter of the country's gross domestic product. From 2010 to 2012, Norway was classified as the most democratic country by the Democracy Index. Curtis M. Wong (14 December 2010). World's Top Democratic Governments: Economist Intelligence Unit's Democracy Index 2010 (PHOTOS). ''The Huffington Post.'' Retrieved 27 August 2013. Democracy index 2011.

Around 994 A.D., two centuries of Viking raids to southern and western areas of Europe tapered off following the adoption of Christianity (Christianization of Scandinavia). Norway then expanded its overseas territory to parts of Great Britain, Ireland, the Faroe Islands, Iceland, and Greenland. Norwegian power peaked in 1265. Competition from the Hanseatic League, and the spread of the Black Death, weakened the country. In 1397, Norway became part of the Kalmar Union with Denmark and Sweden. The Union lasted until Sweden left in 1523. The remaining union with Denmark (Denmark-Norway) lasted nearly three centuries. In 1814, Norwegians adopted (Norwegian Constituent Assembly) a constitution (Constitution of Norway) before being forced into a personal union with Sweden (Union between Sweden and Norway). In 1905, Norway ended the union, subsequently confirmed in a referendum (Norwegian union dissolution referendum, 1905), ending over 500 years of monarchs residing outside the country. In the same year, the country confirmed the election of its own king. Despite its declaration of neutrality in World War II, Norway was occupied (Occupation of Norway by Nazi Germany) for 5 years by forces of Nazi Germany. In 1949 it abandoned neutrality, becoming a founding member of NATO. Discovery of oil in adjacent waters in the late 1960s boosted Norway's economic fortunes.
