They maintain lower water potentials in their roots by having higher internal salt concentrations than seawater and by losing water at the leaf surface. Life could not exist without these vast water reserves—and, if anything, they are becoming even more important to humans than before. In addition, throughout the humid tropics intermediate types have arisen by hybridization with the commonly cultivated niu vai coconuts. The Lost Son and Other Poems, Doubleday, 1948.

The curve on the right shows the theoretical decline of sunlight intensity, depending on the sun's angle from vertical. There are also many seas (smaller branches of an ocean); seas are often partly enclosed by land. The stress produced in our overwhelmed lives makes that search more urgent. A look at sea ice margins suggest that they are pushed back by the warm surface currents in the Atlantic sector as compared to the North Pacific (Fig. 1), this in turn leads to reduced reflection of sunlight and thus warming (albedo feedback).
