review.

Jon,

Is that the title or a critique?
.
I'm afraid that you are on your own with that one, it possibly shows the 
limits of my intellectual capacity when I started to laugh halfway through.

Thanks for sharing.

It brightened an otherwise dull day.

All the best

Antony

I'll buy a beer for anyone that can tell me in reasonably concise language 
what the Abstract of this paper is trying to say; to save you having to click 
on the link here it is:



The urban forest has a significant impact on the city's social and ecological 
performance. However, shrinking space and resources needed to care for trees 
means cultivating community care for the urban forest is an increasingly 
salient issue. To this end, the paper seeks to deepen our understanding of 
the powers shaping people's capacity to care for trees. It identifies the 
body as one of these powers and turns to Deleuze and Guattari for a theory of 
corporeality that illuminates the body's role in the process of becoming a 
'bushcarer'. This highlights the trans-corporeal practices and encounters 
that endow people with the skills and desire needed to care for the urban 
forest. With the ethical utility of the body being debated by social and 
cultural geographers, this article defends its potential by suggesting the 
body and its encounters are deeply implicated in the development of a dyadic 
capacity to care for the urban forest. For urban forestry, this means 
community engagement might be framed as an ethical event that facilitates 
experiments in bodily composition that might change our ways of thinking, 
feeling, and being with the urban forest.



Frankly, I don't think I'm going to make any effort to read further. The 
title grabbed my attention but all that shows is the power of a headline.
