Populus Tremuloides
POPULUS TREMULOIDES is a deciduous tree native to cooler areas of North America
North America
, one of several species referred to by the common name aspen . It is commonly called QUAKING ASPEN, TREMBLING ASPEN, AMERICAN ASPEN, QUAKIES, MOUNTAIN or GOLDEN ASPEN, TREMBLING POPLAR, WHITE POPLAR, POPPLE, and even more names. The trees have tall trunks, up to 25 meters (82 feet) tall, with smooth pale bark, scarred with black. The glossy green leaves, dull beneath, become golden to yellow, rarely red, in autumn. The species often propagates through its roots to form large clonal groves originating from a shared root system. These roots are not rhizomes, as new growth develops from adventitious buds on the parent root system (the ortet). Populus

Isotherm (contour Line)
A CONTOUR LINE (also ISOLINE, ISOPLETH, or ISARITHM) of a function of two variables is a curve along which the function has a constant value, so that the curve joins points of equal value. It is a plane section of the three-dimensional graph of the function f(x, y) parallel to the x, y plane. In cartography , a contour line (often just called a "contour") joins points of equal elevation (height) above a given level, such as mean sea level . A CONTOUR MAP is a map illustrated with contour lines, for example a topographic map , which thus shows valleys and hills, and the steepness or gentleness of slopes. The CONTOUR INTERVAL of a contour map is the difference in elevation between successive contour lines. More generally, a contour line for a function of two variables is a curve connecting points where the function has the same particular value. The gradient of the function is always perpendicular to the contour lines

Permafrost
In geology , PERMAFROST is ground, including rock or (cryotic) soil , at or below the freezing point of water 0 °C (32 °F) for two or more years. Most permafrost is located in high latitudes (in and around the Arctic and Antarctic regions ), but ALPINE PERMAFROST may exist at high altitudes in much lower latitudes. Ground ice is not always present, as may be in the case of nonporous bedrock, but it frequently occurs and it may be in amounts exceeding the potential hydraulic saturation of the ground material. Permafrost
Permafrost
accounts for 0.022% of total water on earth and exists in 24% of exposed land in the Northern Hemisphere. It also occurs subsea on the continental shelves of the continents surrounding the Arctic Ocean

Dugout (shelter)
A DUGOUT or DUG-OUT, also known as a pit-house , earth lodge , is a shelter for humans or domesticated animals and livestock based on a hole or depression dug into the ground. Dugouts can be fully recessed into the earth, with a flat roof covered by ground, or dug into a hillside. They can also be semi-recessed, with a constructed wood or sod roof standing out. These structures are one of the most ancient types of human housing known to archeologists , and the same methods have evolved into modern "earth shelter " technology. Dugouts may also be temporary shelters constructed as an aid to specific activities, e.g., concealment and protection during warfare or shelter while hunting

Caterpillar
CATERPILLARS /ˈkætərˌpɪlər/ are the larval stage of members of the order Lepidoptera
Lepidoptera
(the insect order comprising butterflies and moths ). As with most common names, the application of the word is arbitrary and the larvae of sawflies commonly are called caterpillars as well. Caterpillars of most species are herbivorous , but not all; some (about 1%) are insectivorous , even cannibalistic. Some feed on other animal products; for example clothes moths feed on wool, and horn moths feed on the hooves and horns of dead ungulates . Caterpillars as a rule are voracious feeders and many of them are among the most serious of agricultural pests . In fact many moth species are best known in their caterpillar stages because of the damage they cause to fruits and other agricultural produce, whereas the moths are obscure and do no direct harm
