What is the difference between degradation and conservation?
degradation means use a thing continuously until it finishes
for e.g. we use the resources of earth and it is up to finish
conversation is the opposite of degradation
if means to consume thing and save it for generation for
e.g. now a days we see that most of the buildings use solar energy and because of that we consume much of the minerals used to produce electricity .

Degradation = decrease of quality. This can either happen naturally (e.g. erosion, landslides, forest fires, floods) or man-made (pollution). Pollution = the contamination of nature (air, soil, water) with harmful substances. Can occur naturally (volcanic eruptions) or man made (toxic gas release, industrial effluents) The difference of both is that degradation implies 'a decline of quality from its pure state' while pollution is 'the action that causes degradation'. Yes, pollution is one of the causes…
1-Deterioration is a process that is more gradual and less severe than degradation=) deterioration in one's health condition, in relations etc... 2-Unlike degradation, deterioration is more often followed by the preposition" in" than "of" 3-Though it can be used to designate physical decline, degradation has more moral connotations than deterioration
Conservation biology is the study of methods for protecting biodiversity. Ecology is the branch of biology that deals with the relations of organisms to one another and to their physical surroundings. To sum it all up basically the differences between the two are that conservation biology deals with protection methods and ecology deals with relations and interaction of humans with their environment.
The law of conservation of energy states that the total energy in the universe is a constant and will remain so for example ( x=y+z ). conservation of energy has to do with reducing the amount of energy used through reduced activity and/or increased efficiency in the performance of a particular task.
(degradation is the levelling of earth surface which decreases the height of the landforms (also called denudation WHERE AS (i)aggradation is the levelling of earth surface which increases the height of the landforms . (ii) also called decomposition Denudation or degradation are process by which rock materials are removed from the earth this results in the general lowering in the earth's surface. These materials then deposit in depression such as valleys,lakes and sea beds. This…
What different between the law of conservation of mechanical energy and the universal law of conservation of energy?
Unless I really missed something along the way, energy is energy, and it's always conserved (that is, it doesn't get lost). I have no idea who told you that the "conservation of mechanical energy" and "the universal law of conservation of energy" are different things, but I'd get away from them if I were you. If you can't do that, then ask this person to show you the mathematical difference. (There isn't one.)
The difference between the two is that the law of degradation implies that there is a finite non-zero amount of potential energy that is used cause a process to happen. Recent theory suggests that this is caused by the expanding universe: more energy is converted to potential energy since objects in the universe are moving further and further away from each other. It is possible to create a process that will decrease the entropy of…
I assume that with the "Law of Degradation" you are referring to the Second Law of Thermodynamics.The First Law of Thermodynamics, also known as Conservation of Energy, tells you that energy can't be created or destroyed - the total amount of energy in a closed system remains constant. The Second Law of Thermodynamics imposes additional restrictions on what can be achieved, and what can't be achieved; specifically, any energy conversion or other change is always…
Conservation is to spend or use sparingly. Preservation is to keep and maintain what you have. conservation: the preservation and careful management of the environment and of natural resources;an occurrence of improvement by virtue of preventing loss or injury or other change. preservation: the activity of protecting something from loss or danger;a process that saves organic substances from decay; the condition of being (well or ill) preserved
The goal of ecology is to understand the living world and the interactions that occur between organisms and their environments. Conservation biology is a goal-driven science. It's purpose to to gather information that can be used for the preservation of biodiversity. There is a lot of overlap between the two, but essentially the difference is the purpose: ecology's is to learn more and conservation biology is to save species. or They are very realted but…
Conservation biology- integrates ecology, evolutionary biology, physiology, molecular biology, genetics, and behavioral ecology to conserve biological diversity at all levels. Restoration ecology- applies ecological principles to return degraded ecosystems to conditions as similar as possible to their original state.
Some methods of soil conservation are listed below : Mulching: The bare ground between plants is covered with a layer of organic matter like straw. It helps to retain soil moisture. Contour barriers: Stones, grass, soil are used to build barriers along contours. Trenches are made in front of the barriers to collect water Rock dam: Rocks are piled up to slow down the flow of water. This prevents gullies and further soil loss.
Paper parks are environment conservation areas that exist "solely on paper" ie. the conservation laws that they are bound to force are nonexistent. Therefore the aims for which they were created are not accomplished: environmental degradation, deforestation, polution, poaching is rampant and often not sustainable. A lot of national parks in South East Asia, especially Indonesia are called "paper parks".
