Question: Taking into account Figure 3.4 on page 45 of your textbook (Stakeholder Typology: One, Two, or Three Attributes Present) discuss the ‘Ethics in Practice case’ on page 46 (Are Plants and Flowers Stakeholders? Do they have rights?)
Freeman (1984, P. 46) popularized the definition of a stakeholder as ‘. . . ANY group or individual who can affect or is affected by the achievement of the organization’s objectives’. This is a very broad definition meaning that in today’s global business environment any individuals and groups may be business’s stakeholders (Davey, 2015). This sparks the debate about whether or not the natural environment can be identifiable as a stakeholder. In the

Environmental psychology is the study of the environment’s affect on humans as well as the effect humans have on the environment (Clayton & Myers, 2009). The theories of evolutionary psychology and biophilia seek to explain the extremely complex relationship between humans and their natural environment. Environmental research within this discipline has obtained empirical evidence, which proves helpful in establishing guidelines by which humans can begin to fully understand their role in protecting and sustaining nature as nature, in turn, sustains survival for humans.
According to Clayton and Myers (2009), environmental psychology is “a specialty within

Ruins from the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, remembered as one of the worst natural disasters in United States history
A disaster is a natural or man-made (or technological) hazard resulting in an event of substantial extent causing significant physical damage or destruction, loss of life, or drastic change to the environment. A disaster can be ostensively defined as any tragic event stemming from events such as earthquakes, floods, catastrophic accidents, fires, or explosions. It is a phenomenon that disasters can cause damage to life, property and destroy the economic, social and cultural life of people.

Natural resources (economically referred to as land or raw materials) occur naturally within environments that exist relatively undisturbed by mankind, in a natural form. A natural resource is often characterized by amounts of biodiversity existent in various ecosystems. Natural resources are derived from the environment. This is currently restricted to the environment of Earth yet the theoretical possibility remains of extracting them from outside the planet, such as the asteroid belt. Many of them are essential for our survival while others are used for satisfying our wants. Natural resources may be further classified in different ways

Through the use of technology, people can prevent deforestation, which protects the forests eco-systems.

pertains to the idea that organisms adapt to better suit a changing environment. In the Oliver Stone movie "Natural Born Killers" Mickey a main character and mass murderer in the film states" Some people are just natural born killers. I have evolved and from where I am standing you aren't a man you're an ape." This is untrue people aren't naturally born to kill, it is a learned behavior and not evolutionally in it's idea. Yes all people in a certain situation will kill but not any more than others. The over aggressive are looking for something to blame their appalling behavior on other than themselves. The film and the ideas it contained were both widely accepted by Eric and Dylan Klebold
The sad truth is today's society is just like all others before it, in the sense there are loners. These loners tend to lash out at the society that created them, rather than join in it.

In David Malouf’s novel An Imaginary Life, one of the most prevalent influences on the characters’ lives is the particular environment in which they are placed. Malouf explores the issues of the interrelationship between man and his natural environment, and the impact that changes in environment have on human personality. Through the characterisation of Ovid and the Boy, the effects of setting and physical surroundings are fully explored, and consequently issues such as isolation, conformity to society and the development of culture, including education and language, are discussed.
The main character, Ovid, is a vivid example of how lives can be periodically changed according to

Personal Values and Beliefs, Education and the Natural World
The major force that is shaping the way in which people see the environment today is on the surface personal value and beliefs; however, when these values and beliefs are examined, it can be seen that the education system has a major influence on shaping them. Unfortunately, these values and beliefs reflect a separation from the environment with the environment being seen as a source to be exploited for human gain.

The Primate Odyssey Since the dawn of time and the emergence of living creatures on this earth, many animals have evolved but competition has been a mainstay. This competition is in reference to the competition to survive, dubbed the ?survival of the fittest.? Primates are one species who have experienced this struggle as they tried to seize and exploit the extensive variety of ecological niches. Consequently natural selection has played a prominent role in primate evolution. Charles Darwin?s theory of natural selection ?describes the influence of limited resources in the environment on developing permanent physical and mental characteristics for animals to survive?

Human interaction with the environment has resulted in the depletion and destruction of natural resources. Studies carried out have indicated that the current global population is already exceeding what the earth can sustain. Water, forests, and air have all been threatened by human activities. This has resulted in climate change patterns, which have in turn caused extreme weather conditions. Disasters such as floods and droughts are becoming more frequent than ever recorded in history (Nath and Santel L11,20).

• Renewable resources are ones that can be replenished or reproduced easily. Some of them, like sunlight, air, wind, etc., are continuously available and their quantity is not affected by human consumption. Many renewable resources can be depleted by human use, but may also be replenished, thus maintaining a flow. Some of these, like agricultural crops, take a short time for renewal; others, like water, take a comparatively longer time, while still others, like forests, take even longer.

to sway the emotions of the reader. Throughout the chapter, Lovins contrasts the destructive methods of conventional capitalism with alternative methods that promote sustainability. Lovins describes, “Mountains of toxic tailings” being dumped next to “Impoverished indigenous villages.” These words arouse sympathy for the natives and concern about the destruction of their local environment. He calls the emergence of natural capitalism “the end of the war against Earth.” This makes the reader look at the history of capitalism in the last century and realize that to continue on the present path would mean conscious destruction of the environment and ultimately ourselves.

original condition. Some areas of the earth are, only so far, untouched by humans. This is due to the concern that mankind is encroaching onto the environment at such a rate that many untamed and untouched landscapes are being given over to our farmers for farming, industry, housing, tourism, and other human development projects. Due to all this we are losing too much of what is natural. This is from my personal point of view, and how I honestly feel, I don’t think that we, as humans, should be harvesting our forest for resources. I think that they should leave all the forest alone, because they are taking down a large amount of trees and we are unable to grow them as quick as they are taking them

The conservation ethic states that we should use the natural resources with prudence and efficiently, this could be done through the use of these areas for fishing, and camping. however, the conservation ethics is more for the actual use of trees for building homes and fires and the animals to live off of in this case I would say that to use the conservation ethic would be detrimental to the environment.
There would be no time that the development ethic would be appropriate to use in this situation.

ethnographer observes a learning environment, noting all the interactions that are taking place. He then describes the outcome of those interactions and the participants’ understanding of their actions. Some people mistake ethnography with qualitative and natural research. While similar, ethnographic research distinguishes itself by focusing on holism and by treating culture as vital to the analysis.
Ethnography puts a large focus on the behavior of people in groups and cultural patterns that come up in that behavior. It also explains every action or behavior in its relation to the whole system, which it is a part of. The ethnographic researcher creates a theoretical framework, which he
