Historical Development

Later in one of its works, Huntington adoptou a next position to probabilismo (also for times called by ambientalismo, in the estimated one of that the physical environment is main the determinative one of cultural forms) 3. Although everything, the interest of the workmanship of Huntington for geography meets in the fact of that the drawing of synoptic bodies of scientific knowledge is fully valid in ambient sciences (general Theories or laws) that they can if to apply in deductive way. The fact of only believing in the inductive method in the inquiry constitutes an idea that makes it difficult the discovery of new forms of conhecimento4. Published workmanships As writer, its work reached the thirty headings, between which World Power and Evolution (1919); The Character of Races the Influenced by Physical Environment, natural Selection and Historical Development (1924); Season of Birth; Civilization and Climate (1915) the Mainsprings of Civilization (1945). Climate factor (1914); Human Habitat (1927); Palestine and Its Transformation (1911), Climate Changes, with Stephen Visher Sargent (1922); The Pulse of Asia (1907); Chronicles of America: Continent the Red Man (1919); Prince of Human Geography (with sw Cushing, 5 ed. 1940); west of Pacific (1925). It also collaborated in the elaboration of texts for some universities and published more than one hundred articles in some medias. Conclusion This work on the life and the contribution of Huntington in the Evolution of the Thought Geographic, it brought us one another vision on the world.

Huntington in its more vulgar workmanship and that it was through which that it reached its height in the scientific inquiry (The Pulse of Asia), for example, obtains to show to us and to convince us that it is possible to develop science exactly it are of the permission, to be itself more explicit we poderiamos to dezer that it are of the dimension politics and its parameters. We said already it that it already was imprisoned, restrained and forbidden to effect any trips on the river Eufrates, however did not give up. Huntington still while still alive made very for the evolution of geographic sciences, over all for the ambient ones. By the way of this Huntington detail with its theory of determinismso ambient critical ones around this theory had rained many, what it showed to a certain incababilidade and inadequao of the same one in relation to the reality of Asia, however it used utopian bases to take off inferences immediate. This vision of Huntington sends to us the application to it of the method oldest of sciences geographic-comment and to the idea of the insufficience of the use of an only method. Not obstante, it is perceivable, that Huntington had a certain entailing for physical geography, and this can be confirmed minutely reading its workmanships that exactly give to understand that it had a certain bulge for ambient geography. In U.S.A. Huntington a incontornvel figure in the evolution of the national scientific knowledge is considered.

River Seven Returns

In these places, climatic conditions vary very of the summer for the winter, when the frosts are frequent. The ground is little thick and propitious to the formation of hmus, had to the temperatures lowest. In this landscape if they point out the springs of the rivers Cubato, Black, Pira and of the Jlio, being a transistion region enters the Mountain range of the Sea and plateaus, possessing high ambient value. (GONALVES, 2004) Some species of Fauna gifts in the region where he is situated the city of Joinville are: cougar (concolor Leopardus); jaguatirica (Leopardus pardalis); tapir (Tapirus terrestris); mateiro deer (American Mazana); owl (koeniswaldiana Pulsatrix); gavio-pigeon (Leucopternis lacernulata); parrot (malachitacea Triclaria); araponga (You procreate nudicollis); ferret (Galictis whose); hand – bare (Procyon cancrivorus); capivara (Hydrochaeris hidrocaeris); musical instrument d' water (Chironectes minimus); irara (barbarous Eira); otter (Lutra longicaudis); quati (Nasua nasua); paca (paca Agouti); monkey – I nail (Cepus apella); bugio – ruivo (Alouatta guariba) etc. the hydrography of the city presents the following basins: Basin of the River Waterfall with total area of 84,82 km, the springs meets approximately in an altitude of 40 meters. The estuary is characterized as a estuarina region, under the influence of the tides, where areas remaining of manguezais meet. Main tributaries: Good river I remove, River High Mount, River Matias, River Jaguaro, River Bucarein, River Itaum-Au and Rio Itaum-Mirim. Basin of the River Palmital, drains an area of 357,6 km (including Garuva) the main tributaries: River Cinnamon, Pretty River, River Three Bars, River Seven Returns and River Ounce.

Basin of the River Cubato, with area of 483,8 km is the more important greater and of the City. It is born in the Burnt Mountain range and it empties in the River Palmital. Main tributaries: River Quiriri and Rio of the Silver. Basin of the River Pira, drains an area of 569,5 km, main tributaries: River Pira, River Quati, River Red Waters, River Owner Cristina and Rio of the Jump.
