  • Latitudinarian

    Latitudinarians, or latitude men, were initially a group of 17th-century English theologians – clerics and academics – from the University of Cambridge in Cambridge, England, who were moderate Anglicans (members of the Church of England, which was Protestant ). In particular, they believed that adhering to very specific doctrines, liturgical practices, and church organizational forms, as did the Puritans, was not necessary and could be harmful: "The sense that one had special instructions from God made individuals less amenable to moderation and compromise, or to reason itself." Thus, the latitudinarians supported a broad-based Protestantism. They were later referred to as Broad Church (see also Inclusivism ).

In February 2017, the construction was announced to be completed in 2023, the project cost was estimated at 239 billion rubles .

  • The Latitudinal Gradient in Species Diversity

  • Latitudinal gradients in species diversity

    Species richness, or biodiversity, increases from the poles to the tropics for a wide variety of terrestrial and marine organisms, often referred to as the latitudinal diversity gradient (LDG). The LDG is one of the most widely recognized patterns in ecology . The LDG has been observed to varying degrees in Earth's past. A parallel trend has been found with elevation (elevational diversity gradient ), though this is less well-studied
