    Oceania’s natural resources are best defined in connection with its island groups. The continental islands of Australia, New Zealand, and Papua New Guinea support rich natural-resource economies, while the other Pacific Islands rely on their natural resources for subsistence more than economic development. Climate and Agriculture. Horticulture is only economically practical as long as the population density remains low and land for new fields is readily available. When horticulturalists are not permitted to practice their usual field shifting pattern of farming, the result is soil depletion and poverty. CHAPTER World War II: The War Against Japan. In World War II, for the first time, the United States had to fight a war on two fronts. Though the central strategic principle governing allocation of resources to the two fronts provided for concentrating first on the defeat of the European Axis, on the American side this principle was liberally interpreted, permitting conduct of an offensive.

The distribution of a species is the geographic area where the abundance of the species is greater than zero. Populations are dynamic entities that vary in size over time and space. A population is a group of individuals from the same species that interact with one another within a particular area.
