A Model Of Managed Primary Commodities: Coffee And Colombia, Evan Hansen

Political Science and International Relations Undergraduate Theses

This study attempts to track the effects of coffee on the Colombian economy, and by doing so, it also hopes to analyze the Colombian efforts to lessen the effects of coffee on the national economy.

Political Science and International Relations Undergraduate Theses

Once again national and international news crews and I congregated at the Montana-Alberta border to discover why Montana and Canadian farmers were gathering there.

These farmers assembled at Sweetgrass, Montana, to voice their anxiety over the low grain prices on July 9, 1999.

A Comprehensive Analysis Of The Proposed Alternatives For Grizzly Bear Reintroduction Into The Bitterroot Ecosystem, Sara Adams

Life and Environmental Sciences Undergraduate Theses

This would require amending the Endangered Species Act (ESA) to allow the population to be labeled as experimental and nonessential. The second alternative proposes that the grizzlies naturally reinhabit the BE, through migrational movements. Experts have agreed that natural reinhabitation of the ...
