The Creosote Bush (Larrea tridentate) - Creosote (Larrea tridentate) The Creosote bush, Larrea tridentate, is the most characteristic specie of the North American deserts. It is in the Zygophyllacaeae family. Although considered native specie, it is actually an invader from South America. The common name creosote suggests one of the reasons it is able to survive in some of harshest environments. According to Schultz and Floyd, “stems and evergreen leaves are covered with a sticky resin that smells like, but doesn’t contain, the wood preservative creosote…the resin screens leaves the leaves against ultraviolet radiation, reduces water loss, and poisons microbes and plant eating animals.” The creosote bush starts as a single stem,...   [tags: dessert plants]

The Promise of Mediation, written by Baruch Bush and Joe Folger - The book The Promise of Mediation, written by Baruch Bush and Joe Folger, outlines two different approaches to mediation: problem-solving and transformative. A problem-solving mediator uses a highly controlled process that directs the “substance of the discussion” (Burgess, 1997). Problem-solving mediators highlight the areas that the parties agree on, while avoid areas of disagreement. This approach means that problem-solving mediators play a large role in in “crafting settlement terms and obtaining the parties' agreement,” even though in theory all decisions are made by the participants (Burgess, 1997)....   [tags: problem solving, transformative mediation]
