Compilation of Forestry Terms and Definitions

"The terms and their definitions were collected from publications and by utilising the Internet. Forestry experts were also consulted to provide their input in the case of some of the compiled terms. The terms were taken directly from the identified sources. For some terms more than one source are mentioned. This means that the same definition was found within several literature sources without necessarily indicating the most likely original source of that definition.

Glossary of Forest Terminology

"This forest terminology largely follows that contained in the British Commonwealth Forest Terminology, or the Forest Terminology of the Society of American Foresters. Where these references have not been in agreement, the definition more suitable to the condition in Ontario has been used. Certain terms in this glossary either are not found in, or are not in agreement with, these texts. Such terms are marked with an asterisk."

Star Wars Thesaurus

"The Thesaurus lists the authority name, nicknames (including military and civilian titles), use for names, related planet (usually homeworld), political alliance/related alliance, and related characters for each Principal Character. Nicknames will appear only under the main entry, and will not have a separate entry traced to the main entry. The Thesaurus is limited to Principal Characters only, as the many minor or supporting characters frequently lacked enough descriptive information to be included in the Thesaurus categories.

Thesaurus of Sustainability

"This Thesaurus is a collection of terms and concepts that survey the broad discourse on sustainability. Most definitions of sustainability, and the various disciplinary attempts to put it into practice, are not well suited in and of themselves for the actual achievement of sustainability. These definitions are descriptive of a future state of sustainability but lack a prescriptive process that presents how the transition from the present state of unsustainability to a future sustainability process may occur.

Moreover, the professional or technical use of these terms is often at variance, with differentmeanings attributed to them.
